Keeping the Passion, Focusing on Mission
Keeping the Passion, Focusing on Mission is an invigorating journey that revisits the reasons we are drawn to the world of nonprofits: Passion and mission. This will be the topic for the June 15 DFWAE luncheon that will be held at the new Irving Convention Center. These two motivations often become obscured by daily minutiae, and can even create competing priorities. Guest speaker Jonathan Schick urges members to be prepared for a stimulating time as select film clips and stories are employed that present a refreshing and game-changing look at our calling.
