AEG Meeting Details
Capacity Café: New Ideas for Organizational Sustainability
Tuesday, May 19
7:30-10:00 a.m. at American Red Cross
2600 W. Wisconsin Ave., Milwaukee
Join us at the next AEG meeting for Capacity Café, a unique capacity building event featuring facilitators from the Milwaukee Consultants Forum. We will be thinking and talking about sustainability, which has been our theme in 2015. Please note that this session is extended to 10:00 a.m. to accommodate a full exploration of the topic.
In today's challenging environment, it is becoming harder to build and maintain sustainable organizations.
For new organizations, the challenges are finding the resources needed for new ideas and building the infrastructure to keep things moving. For older, mature organizations, the challenges are often about maintaining the community's investment in what works while also being open to new ideas.
Everyone needs a chance to talk about these issues and think creatively about how to address them.
Our time together will help us all think through and answer some difficult questions around organizational sustainability. The model we will use is from the World Café structure, in which participants will be moving from table to table, addressing a series of escalating questions designed to address sustainability in creative ways.
Milwaukees Consultants Forum facilitators will host each table and share what has been learned through a larger group discussion. The Consultants Forum is a new gathering of consultants committed to nonprofits and building their capacity. Capacity Café is modeled on a successful series of events that are held regularly in Madison by CORE.
Milwaukee Consultants Forum Capacity Café facilitators include:
Rob Meiksins ~ Jose Vasquez ~ Kathy Clark ~ Marge Combe
Sara Wilson ~ Eloiza Altoro ~ Ron Kuramoto ~ Lisa Attonito

Watch for the 2015 Nonprofit Salary & Benefits Survey!
Produced every two years by AEG through a collaborative effort of nonprofits in our area, the Nonprofit Salary & Benefits Survey is a valuable resource for executives and management teams.
The 2015 survey will go out in June and needs to be completed by the end of the month. AEG members will get the first look at the published survey at our September 15 meeting,
which will feature a discussion on wage and salary administration.
All nonprofits are invited to provide data for the new edition, which will include:
• A new section on the impact of the Affordable Care Act on nonprofit employers
• Several new job titles and more information on benefits
• Salary data for more than 60 job titles with wage breakouts by organizational size, budget and mission
• Statistical breakdowns on benefits
• Pay increase data
• Tactics nonprofits use in an uncertain economy
• An excellent section on Executive Director compensation
AEG members receive a significant discount on purchasing the survey. For more information on participating and ordering call 414-344-3933.
