Upcoming Nonprofit Member Discussions

FAR Nonprofit Member Only Breakfast Discussion – May 19, 2022

Angela Parker
Senior HUman Resource Manager
Center for Law and Society Policy (CLASP)

Non-Profit Members Discuss Workplace Wellness

Angela Parker, Senior Human Resource Manager at the Center for Law and Social Policy (CLASP)  facilitated the non-profit member breakfast discussion on May 19, 2022, titled “Workplace Wellness.” It was an opportunity for members to discuss the approaches to employee well-being which encompasses physical, emotional, and mental states.  Some of the key take-a-ways from the discussion included 1) support for wellness activities/programs must be supported and promoted by the CEO,  2) supervisors need to be extra sensitive to recognizing burn-out and other symptoms of other challenges, and 3) lead by example; participate in the activities and model healthy behaviors.  The participants shared the strategies they employ to promote well-being.  Angela shared the most intriguing of CLASP’s programs. “Protecting Your Peace (PYP)”.  PYP means maintaining a healthy environment for growth while guarding your state of mind.

Participant’s comments: “This was very informative” “Thanks for sharing the innovative wellness activities and programs.” “This is such an important topic.”



FAR Nonprofit Member Only Breakfast Discussion -  April 6, 2022

Association Executives Discuss Approaches to Legal Support

Stephanie Osborn, Chief Operating Officer at the National League of Cities facilitated the non-profit member breakfast discussion on April 6, 2022 titled “Approaches to Legal Support.”  It was an opportunity for association executives to discuss the various needs and activities that require legal counsel.  Contracts, intellectual property and human resource issues were among the top issues the participants identified.  Several of the participants have in-house legal counsel while the majority outsource the function to one or more legal firms.  However, it was clear that a hybrid model was ultimately used by all the participants.  Even those with in-house support require outside expertise or need assistance during peak periods.  One of the take-a-ways was to engage in a relationship with more than one firm.  This provides the opportunity to pivot when needed, taps into specialized expertise, can control costs and may help meet demanding timelines.
