Leadership and Development
This session is focused on sharing a tool that The Arc US is committed to helping its chapters replicate to help them function at their highest and best capacity. The Standards for Excellence: The Ethics and Accountability Code for the Nonprofit Sector provides all the guidance and resources any nonprofit needs to tighten up their policies, more clearly define accountability, ensure compliance and a whole host of organizational management, fiscal and operational elements. Chapter leaders can use this session to determine how they can use progressive levels of the Standards for Excellence to strengthen their organizational effectiveness, interactions with various stakeholders and brand image in the broader community. This is definitely a session well-suited for any leader committed to being a change-maker. Your chapter will never be the same once you adopt the Standards for Excellence.
