Embracing Advocacy
Strengthening the Power of the Non-Profit Voice
Advocacy. It can be a scary word. For many it conjures up images of
high-powered lobbyists, backroom deals, big money and special interests.
But advocacy is so much more, and it can be an accessible, simple, powerful
tool that is often under-utilized by non-profits. In its simplest form,
advocacy voice. It's storytelling and sharing the good work you do. And
although you may not know it, you’re likely already advocating every day.
But the most successful non-profits have willingly and thoughtfully
integrated targeted advocacy into their overall strategic plans and
mission. Why? Because when done right, advocacy can strengthen day-to-day
operations, build capacity, develop collaborative partnerships, and
maximize an organization’s communications and philanthropic reach. In this
fun and interactive workshop, learn the basics of Advocacy 101 and how to
make it work for your non-profit. Explore what advocacy is and isn't, what
it can do to strengthen the power of your work, and how you can embrace
advocacy as a simple, useful tool. Please RSVP wit
h MaryCait at cf-sc.org.

governors, more compelling champions of your work, and more effective
fundraisers. This workshop is open to board members or staff. Space is

ONLINE: The New Overtime Rules - What Your Nonprofit Needs to KnowThe
Department of Labor announced new overtime regulations that will go into
effect on December 1, 2016. These new regulations affect many nonprofits
and small businesses. Most employees earning less than $47,500 per year
will be entitled to overtime compensation. This presentation will highlight
the upcoming changes to the final overtime rules and salary requirements
for employees who are categorized as “exempt” under the executive,
professional, or administrative exemptions, and answer the following

What are the changes and who do they apply to?
For employees spending the night or traveling, how do you determine what is
on-duty time? This question is important for youth overnight camp programs.
What do you need to do to prepare for the implementation off the new rule?

This training will be held live in Seattle and also available as a live
webcast. Please indicate in registration how you wish to participate. WHEN:
Tuesday, November 1, 2016 from 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM. COST: $10 Members of
