Simply Possible

Recently, I met with the membership sub-committee of our local chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. One subtext of the 20-minute meeting, which for convenience was held directly after the regular chapter meeting, was how we could, given our workloads and responsibilities, efficiently and effectively support memberships of this all-volunteer organization.

Among other things, we agreed to keep the structure informal, i.e., to arrive at chapter meetings early to meet and greet people as our schedules allowed vs. creating monthly assignments to do the same. We left the meeting with a dozen tasks to do —none extremely time consuming, but all designed to support the organization and share the workload.

Using the concept of that is is possible to simplify but still remain effective, what is one action you can do today to reduce the workload at your nonprofit?
