DNA Creative Communications (DNA), the Upstate’s leading marketing and public relations firm for nonprofits, presented Get Your Nonprofit House in Order: Human Resources and Finance Strategies at the 2014 South Carolina Association of Nonprofit Organizations (SCANPO) Summit in February.

“Due to the success of this presentation during our Shine the Light on Your Nonprofit session in 2013, SCANPO asked if we would expand the topic statewide at their 2014 Summit,” said Debbie Nelson, founder and president of DNA. “We were thrilled to bring our expert panel with us to Charleston.”

Debbie Nelson served as the session moderator. Speaking on Debbie’s panel was Carrie Scott of Find Great People International, Tim Ervolina, President of the United Way Association of SC, and Jeremy Naess of Dixon Hughes Goodman, Asheville. This presentation was originated from DNA’s Shine the Light on Your Nonprofit workshops.

Nonprofit leaders who attended this presentation learned tools for building a sustainable organization and how to prepare for the impending nonprofit leadership deficit. Topics ranged from best practices for recruiting and retaining a strong team to operating with sound financial principles. Debbie Nelson serves on the Board of Directors for SCANPO and lends her time and expertise to the fiscal oversight and strategic implementation of policies and programs aligned with the SCANPO’s mission.
