Ready to be together. Ready to survey new realities of our sector. Ready to navigate this changing landscape with each other.
For many of us, the pandemic didn’t bring the worst-case headquarters challenges we feared. Donations continued to flow, staff transitioned to work-from-home, and despite lockdowns we pursued our missions.
Yet the pandemic was also deeply isolating: a stark reminder that we were never meant to go it alone. Now as restrictions are lifted, we hope you’ll join us for OneAccord: Ready.
In this period of intense change, we'll take this chance to relax, to look afresh at our new landscape, and exchange innovations with others. But most of all we'll ground ourselves together in the One who never changes.
Jesus said we will be identified as His followers by our love for one another. This applies not only to those we serve but also to those we serve alongside. • How do we develop organizational cultures that promote wellness? • How do we ensure our workplaces become places of flourishing? • How do we lead from a place of health and wholeness?
Fundraising & Marketing
Thriving organizations know how to engage their audience in compelling ways that draw them into mission together. In a dramatically shifting landscape, join the conversation with peers and experts about what's changed and what's remained the same. We'll discuss tried and true best practices, as well as recent trends and bring practical insights to your daily challenges.
Do we have to say it? COVID changed our landscape in unforeseen ways. Now we have the opportunity to shape anew our way of doing business. We’ll explore how the pandemic era's intense change brings us peril and promise. We'll look at both the threats and opportunities on the horizon, with an emphasis on how current events are shaping the nonprofit sector.
Research & WASH
This track will feature two sessions with a special emphasis on WASH and two sessions focusing on Monitoring, Evaluation and Research (MERL). These sessions will be learner friendly--helpful for both practitioners and those wanting a primer in these sectors.
PRE-EVENT Intensive -Research-
Tuesday, Noon--4pm. How might we as Christ-followers think about evidence? What counts, and to what extent should strategic decisions be based on evidence? Join us as we discuss a Kingdom view of evidence, as we seek to connect, reflect, and leave with practical takeaways to apply in our work.
PRE-EVENT Intensive -WASH-
Tuesday, Noon--4pm. Join WASH peers as we evaluate our commitment to WASH Principles of Excellence, pursue Integral Mission, and dive into our roles as Christian/Faith-Based organizations striving for universal access to WASH. Throughout the event, we'll hear 'TapTalks' and interact around poster presentations, giving you a window into additional ways that you can contribute by exemplifying Christ-centered WASH practice. The WASH Summit is open to all -- Accord WASH Alliance members and non-members alike.
