Event Description

Title
How to Manage the Opportunities and Challenges of Shifts in Funding

Presenter
Lesley Bennett, Consultant, CFO Selections

Since the beginning of the pandemic, many organizations have seen major shifts in funding. What are the common pitfalls of short-term changes in funding? What should organizations do to weather these shifts in funding? This session will focus on how to manage short-term shifts in funding without overextending their long-term capacity or missing the opportunity to build for the future.

Due to the increasing COVID-19 cases and rise of the Delta variant, this network session will be held virtually via Zoom.
