Philanthropy Journal, an American on-line newsletter, has recently released a series of tip sheets on working effectively with consultants, with papers on smart use of consultants, ups and downs of non-profit consulting, the steps needed in hiring a consultant, and – our favourite – “when do you need a fundraising consultant”? (That might be…now.) You can find all of these under “Nonprofit Consulting 2009” here.
Does your orchestra or organization have a policy on social media use? With an ever-expanding group of Canadian orchestras getting into social media (via Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and others), they might be in order.

Thanks to this week’s Charity Village newsletter, where we found this link.
