Nonprofit Organizations Invited to Drucker Workshop
April 17, 2009
The UT Dallas Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) is partnering with a local organization to bring new resources and training to local nonprofits. The IPA will host the first Dallas Drucker Society workshop April 21 and May 6 on the UT Dallas campus.
The workshop, “Achieving Results = Asking the Right Questions” is for nonprofit organizations. The content is based on Peter Drucker’s book The Five Most Important Questions You Will Ever Ask about Your Organization.
Peter Drucker is widely considered the “father of modern management.” Drucker Societies are created to bring his wisdom and teachings to organizations in an effort to create effective managers and ethical leaders. These societies are forming all over the world, with the Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University serving as the hub.
IPA Director Dr. Kimberly Aaron has been working with Cathey Brown, CEO of Rainbow Days, Inc. and member of the IPA advisory council, to establish the Dallas Drucker Society. Bob Buford, founding chairman of the Drucker Institute, has been acting in an advisory role.
The free three-hour workshops are underwritten by the Drucker Institute and are the first Drucker Society initiative in Dallas. The workshops are open to the public, but seating is limited and registration is required.
“This collaboration with the Dallas Drucker Society complements the Institute of Public Affair’s mission of strengthening the capacity of public officials and nonprofit professionals in serving their constituents,” said Aaron.
