Strategic Hiring and Onboarding for Nonprofits
Alliance for Better Nonprofits – A nonprofit can't accomplish its mission without a highly effective team of employees. There is more to hiring than just advertising a job opening. It pays to be intentional when developing the job description, attracting the right candidates, and interviewing with processes specific to the job. The new hire process doesn’t end with the offer and many nonprofits underestimate the benefits of a solid onboarding process. Having an effective onboarding process increases retention rates and speeds up the time that new employees can begin adding value to your organization. This workshop is for director-level or executive-level staff, anyone interested in pursuing a supervisory leadership position, or any professional seeking to hone his/her HR skills. Learning Objectives Include: -Develop desired criteria for preferred candidates. -Craft meaningful and efficient job ads/postings based on the required talents, skills and experience. -Create a specific recruitment strategy. -Create an effective interview team to improve the quality of the interview. -Develop the ability to empirically evaluate job candidates. -Create powerful new employee onboarding to ensure your new hires get up to speed quickly.

Mayfest Farewell Bash!
Open Chord / All Things Music – Mayfest Kiss Kiss Bang TBA $10 Thursday, July 27 Doors: 7pm | Show: 8pm All Ages Come out & help us bid farewell to Mayfest, one of our favorite local bands, before they head off to Boston to continue their musical journey! Super bob is a rock band from the Washington DC area formed under the name "bob" in 05. They have three members - Matt Santoro on vocals, Adam Smith on guitar, and Drew Recny on drums. Their live show is more than overblown hype; it's a fun, energetic, captivating, physical expression of music with an energy and presence beyond the words that can be written in a bio. The band spread through the eastern half of the country by starting in one place, building a following, and moving to the next city. Nothing fancy, no label, no investor just hard work and dedication. Super bob is a new sound in rock and roll, with an old fashioned rock and roll attitude. They're familiar, yet completely different.
