Thanks for Your Help with 2011-2012 FIC Client Survey
The 2011-2012 Funding Information Center (FIC) Client Survey has now closed and we thank you for taking time to fill it out. Your responses help us evaluate the Funding Information Center's services, to direct future services, and to quantify the value of our program.
From 1990 to 2010, the Funding Information Center has helped organizations bring at least $223 million in public and private funding to the state of Texas to support health-related programs and services. This is the FIC's eleventh biennial survey since 1990 and your survey responses will assist the FIC and its mission.

The Science of Screening and Placing Volunteers
SPONSOR: Center for Nonprofit Management
WHEN: April 11, 9 am to noon.
WHERE: Center for Nonprofit Management, 2902 Floyd Street, (Dallas, TX).
DESCRIPTION: This workshop centers around managing risk in your volunteer program - exercises that will help the attendees create a screening/placement system for their organization that makes sense for the type of volunteers they have. Attendees will learn how to develop (or improve) their techniques and tools to support an efficient and effective pathway for prospective volunteers to follow. Includes video of several volunteer interviews I've done for an online class at UNT - humorous; organized around a mythical nonprofit called "Kreepy Kids", a camp to help children overcome their fear of bugs! The entire workshop will use insects as examples of what to do / what not to do.
COST: $65 members / $115 non-members.

Unconscious Bias and its Influence on Employment Decisions
SPONSOR: Center for Nonprofit Management
WHEN: April 15, 1 to 4 pm.
WHERE: Center for Nonprofit Management, 2902 Floyd Street, (Dallas, TX).
DESCRIPTION: What Was I Thinking?: Unconscious Bias and Its Influence on Employment Decisions
As much as we like to think of ourselves as logical, rational people, the truth is we are not always aware of what motivates many of the decisions we make. Unconscious bias based on impermissible things such as race, gender, age, religion, and disability can influence many of the employment decisions our managers and supervisors make. Learn how it works and discover strategies for combating unconscious bias and minimizing its influence in the workplace.
COST: $65 members / $115 non-members.
