Many in the Social Sector believe the myth that 501(c)(3) organizations are not allowed to advocate for themselves or their causes. Zoot discusses the myths and the reality of advocacy in the Social Sector with David L. Thompson, Vice President of Public Policy for the National Council of Nonprofits, our national advocacy group.
Zoot appeared live at the California Association of Museums Conference in Palm Springs to ask museum professionals what their Museum BS was. Special thanks to CAM CEO, Celeste DeWald. For more on CAM go to https://www.calmuseums.org/
Zoot Velasco, our host, gave the keynote speech at the Utah State Poverty Conference for Utah Community Action Partnership this week. He explained the importance of our work and how it affected him personally... no BS.
We discuss strategic planning and get to the heart of what works and new ways to plan with Jan Masaoka, one of the county's top leaders of the sector, who literally wrote the book on the subject! Next week we will hear part 2 of the interview with Jan on Boards.
