Promoting Strong Stewardship Across a National Network
The nation’s network of 1,000+ Community Action Agencies have deployed a core set of 58 Organizational Standards that assist in assessing and managing risk. The National Community Action Partnership was instrumental in the development of these standards which include a comprehensive assessment of agency risk every two years as well as standards focused on governance, finance, personnel, outcomes, and strategic planning. Setting and striving to meet these standards strengthens risk management over time. This session will explore how the process–and the development of a risk resources portal synced to the standards–provides a replicable case study to inspire systematic and proactive risk practice across a diverse nonprofit network.
