PROPOSAL REVIEW

  • In what way is the topic broadly relevant to the New York City area nonprofit sector? What makes it interesting to the nonprofit staff, board members, and volunteers of our member organizations?
  • What unique perspective or expertise will this topic and presenter(s) provide?
  • How will the topic align with our Eight Key Areas of Nonprofit Excellence?
  • Is the topic's focus clear and well-defined so that expectations of attendees are met?
  • Will attendees feel that they learned solid, relevant information that they can put to use in their organizations right away?
  • How will the presenter(s) make the session engaging and interactive?
  • What references have the presenter(s) provided indicating that they are knowledgeable and engaging speakers?
  • Will the handouts, materials, and resources be helpful to session attendees?
COMPENSATION
While NPCC presenters are not financially compensated, they do receive significant publicity exposure before, during, and after the session.
NON-SOLICITATION POLICY
NPCC's educational workshops and trainings are learning experiences and are thereby non-commercial. Although presenters are welcome to provide contact information and distribute basic information about their organization or firm, or to mention an offering as an incidental part of a larger presentation, under no circumstances should a session be used as a forum for direct promotion of a speaker's products or services for monetary self-interest. Only 4% or less of the total workshop should be devoted to basic information about your organization or firm (appx. 5 minutes out of a 2-hour workshop, for example).
