2017 Western Regional Planned Giving Conference

"Exploring the Future of Gift Planning"
Twenty-six years ago the Planned Giving Round Table of Southern California (PGRTSC), now the Partnership for Philanthropic Planning of Greater Los Angeles (PPP-LA) started a conference called the Western Regional Planned Giving Conference (WRPGC).  Today, the WRPGC is regarded as one of the premier planned giving conferences in the country.  Participation has grown enormously with attendees as well as sponsors. The conference's popularity has grown exponentially among financial planners, accountants, gift planning, and major gift officers, and vice presidents and directors of development.

Board Leadership Series

"Achieving Board Excellence"

Board performance is critical to the success of a nonprofit organization, and their ability to achieve impact. What does board excellence look like?  And how can nonprofit boards become more effective? While boards and executive leadership often spend the time to ensure that they select great board members, staying current on best practices and monitoring performance comes secondary. This workshop is designed as an interactive workshop for teams of board members and the executive director/CEO.

Diversity & Inclusion

"New Approaches for Organizational Success"

The evidence is clear: the old school way of “doing diversity” in organizations doesn’t work. 

However, far from debunking all diversity work as useless, the evidence is also clear the “new school” approach yields superior results, even for the bottom line!  “Doing diversity” is now necessary for organizational success and high performance, yet few leaders understand the real reasons to do it – much less how.  Considering the demographics, values and work style of the Millennial generation – the largest in human history – doing diversity right is going to make or break organizations in the 21st Century.  However, few have developed the critical inclusive leadership and communication skills to adapt. 

In this dynamic and interactive session, come hear the startling real reasons why “doing diversity” is necessary, yet so difficult!  You will learn the key characteristics of inclusive leaders and workplaces, explore one practical tool for effectively navigating human differences at work, conduct an assessment of your current organization and create an action plan for implementing “New School D&I” in your work life
