The first 20 months of my tenure as Nonprofit Center of Milwaukee CEO have been filled with opportunities to help the organization be agile and responsive to the sector it serves. We listened to our members, supporters and the nonprofit community as a whole to better understand the role that NPC's mission fills.
Through internal analyses, gathering recommendations and expertise from the community and identifying priority areas of focus, the organization has identified new and critical opportunities for growth. I would like to take a moment now to give a brief update on some important changes to our organization.
Over the next few months, the organization will move forward with renewed purpose and attention to capacity building, advocacy, programming and communications. While we are still putting the pieces of our plan in place, it is apparent that significant changes will be made - changes that are in the best interest of the organization in meeting its long-term vision, strategies and goals.
In order to prepare for broader organizational changes, we determined that a staffing restructure is needed to best serve our constituents. Unfortunately, this means that we are eliminating three long-time NPC positions - Client Relations Director (Margaret Thom), Training Coordinator (Susanne Vella) and Corporate and Events Manager (Debbie Knepke).
We sincerely thank all three of these wonderful people for their years of service to our members and to this organization. We wish them all the best for the future.
Change is sometimes difficult, but essential. As the next phase of NPC evolves, we are eager to continue using your feedback for guidance. We want to remain responsive to your needs, helping you help your community. So please feel free to call or email me at any time to ask questions, offer suggestions or make a comment.
