Whether personal or professional, New Year’s resolutions represent a fresh start, and are made to help you reach your larger goals. I make resolutions every year, some I keep, some I screw up on January 2, but I find the process of making them refreshing, and it gives me a chance to reflect on what I’ve done well in the past and the things I need to work on in the future.
For organizations, it’s the same exercise but even better, because as you set your 2010 initiatives you have a whole team of people buying in on “resolutions” that will make your more successful in the New Year. For the second year in a row, Convio is hoping you’ll share your nonprofit’s initiatives or resolutions that will help you achieve goals and become more efficient and effective in 2010. This spurs an interesting dialogue, and provides insight into the needs and challenges that you as nonprofit professionals face every day. At the Convio Summit a few weeks ago, we asked several of your peers to share their resolutions on camera – check out the below video and I am betting a few of them might ring true for your organization as well.
Join the discussion and share your 2010 resolution at www.convio.com/resolve2010 and pre-register for the Nonprofit Resolutions Guide that will be published in early January. The guide will outline many of the common challenges and needs that nonprofits experience, and will have tips and best practices from industry experts that will help you overcome obstacles and fulfill your resolution.
