Tips for Managing Your Small Non-profit Organization

I was prompted to write this article, Tips for Managing Your Small Non-profit Organization, by a post by Wendy at Your Scrumhalf Connection. It seems that USA Rugby has started this new feature where people who want to volunteer in some capacity can sign up in a database at USA Rugby, and, I'm guessing, rugby clubs, territorial unions, and other rugby groups can search the database for people in their area, then contact them. A good idea, but I'm wondering about the execution of it. I read about in Wendy's post, but when I went to USA Rugby's site, I couldn't find it anywhere. It needs some heavy marketing to make it work, but we'll see what happens. I signed up, just to see what happens, and so far I got one nonsensical email. Hmm.

But I digress. If people are volunteering to help with administration of rugby clubs and unions, there are bound to be people who haven't worked in this type of organization before. There are also many other types of similar organizations, small, non-profit organizations. And they all face similar issues. So I wrote this article to help. Even if you've worked in a non-profit for a while, these tips should help you. Give it a read, and contact me if you have any questions. I'm offering to help any rugby clubs and other rugby organizations, free of charge, with operational and organizational issues, until I get overwhelmed with requests.

Since it's a several pages long document, I saved it in PDF format. And, since there isn't a way to add a PDF document to this blog, you'll have to follow this link to my website, where I've posted it, or to, where I've submitted it, but it won't show up there for a few days.

Thanks for the shout-out! I really think this avenue could be REALLY good for USA Rugby if they took advantage of it. They could have scores of people signing up and then if they gave them jobs, thoughts, ideas, think of the REAL grass roots movement we would have.

Thanks for the article!
