Session 1 Concurrent Workshops
N. Jane McCandless, Ph.D. Professor of Sociology and Dean of theCollege of Social Sciences
The process of identifying and developing new leaders to succeed current leaders is vitally important to all organizations. Preparing for the next line of leadership allows organizations to make smooth transitions in times when changes in leadership are either planned or unplanned. However, less than one-third of all organizations report that they have a succession plan in place. This workshop focus on how an organization can begin to develop a multi-year process that will result in individuals who are prepared to lead when called upon.

- Budget example (Excel file)
Sooho Lee Ph.D., Associate Professor, Department of Political Science
It is often said that the budget section is the backbone of grant proposals. Grant reviewers often turn right to the budget even before reading the proposal to see what the money will be used for. The needs and project narrative should match the budget. The estimates in the budget should be realistic and credible. This workshop offers a quick effective guide for developing a grant proposal budget in the public sector, especially focusing on nonprofit organizations.
