00794 Where is the "Profit" in Non Profits?
Monday, December 3, 2018
11:00AM - 12:00PM 
ucidce.zoom.us

A nonprofit exists to serve - but it is still a business. A nonprofit is a business whose "profit" is in service, people, or programs, not shareholders or dividends. If run in a business-like fashion, there are more resources to fulfill the mission of the nonprofit. If poorly run, services dwindle, people suffer, and ultimately, the cause fails. Utilizing standard business practice in the NGO world realizes on the combination of heart and head. Please join UCI Division of Continuing Education in welcoming Jim McAleer, Chief Executive Officer for Alzheimer's Orange County, as he presents the importance of ROI, how to "fully load" programs to establish that ROI, how to look at donors as investors, and why staff management is one of the keys to success or failure. The webinar will also include pre-registration advisement for individuals interested in UCI DCE’s fully online Nonprofit Management Specialized Studies Program.

00714 Adapting to the Millennial Workplace

11:00AM - 12:00PM 
ucidce.zoom.us

When it comes to working with the generation that will comprise 75% of the workforce by 2025, some stereotypes can be deceiving (even misleading). On the other hand, some may be spot-on, but not for the reasons you think. Join us as we discuss what millennials really think about:

1. How the ’08 Recession Impacted Them (It shaped their view of life and work.)
2. Workplace Communication (You’ll be surprised at their view on meetings and conversation.)
3. Working 8-5 (You’re going to need a new employee handbook.)
4. Their Work Ethic (They’ll admit it. Social media is a love-hate relationship.)

Meet the Presenter: Victoria Tucker is an entrepreneur, speaker, and author leveraging science and technology in order to work smarter. As CEO and Founder of ZBglobal and STEAMbeyond, she has taught, guided, or mentored more than 20,000 individuals.
