Great Human Resources Training

January 15, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Western Slope Rural Philanthropy Days Logo - 2015

Join the Western Colorado Nonprofit Council, in conjunction with Western Slope Rural Philanthropy Days, for the next session in their “Great Governance Training Series.” This training series is based on Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence in Colorado, produced by the Colorado Nonprofit Association.

This workshop will be relevant for organizations of all sizes, as the principles of Human Resources are relevant for a board president working with a single staff member to a director of a large-staff organization. Attendees will leave with some basic information about:

  • Effective communications/conflict resolution
  • Staff retention and strategies for coping when a valued employee leaves
  • Whether it’s a good idea to hire contractors in lieu of staff
  • Handling the employee who can’t or won’t perform to their potential

The next session will be presented by Michaelle Smith, MPA, who is currently serving as the Senior Director of Learning at Hilltop Community Resources. Michaelle has been involved with non profits for the past 30 years.  She is currently Senior Director of Learning with Hilltop Community Resources, a nonprofit located in Grand Junction with a 30 million dollar budget and over 650 employees.  She has been the Executive Director of Mesa County United Way and Manager of the Southwest Regional Office for the Land Trust Alliance. Areas of expertise are organizational developmenthuman resourcesleadership development and coaching. She has supervised employees for over 25 years.  Michaelle has received the Professional in Human Resources Certification and currently provides training and coaching for supervisors and managers in Hilltop and other organizations.
