About the Instructor:  

Lisa Arnold has provided consulting services to nonprofit and community organizations since 2003. Her extensive and varied nonprofit work includes positions as community organizer, development director, communications director, volunteer manager, executive director, and sometimes all of the above at once.

Some of Lisa's other adventures in nonprofit work include:

* Directing several successful organizing campaigns (at both
 the community--and state--level), including a campaign to

 domestic violence calls and a campaign for 80 units of  
 affordable housing on Chicago's Northwest Side (that
 resulted in 160);

* Co-founding a statewide advocacy organization (Equal
 Rights Washington); and launching a program to develop
 civic leaders in Chicago, one of whom was chosen by local
 foundations to represent Chicago at the  Fourth World
 Conference On Women in Beijing, China.

* Producing and/or teaching fundraising and other nonprofit
 workshops throughout Puget Sound, including a six-day
 training  series in conjunction with the Gill Foundation,
 and workshops at The Evergreen State College, the
 University of Washington, Highline Community College, and

* Media coverage of her work, projects and clients includes
 pieces in numerous major TV, radio, and newspaper outlets
 in Chicago and  Seattle, including WLS, WGN, WBBM, CLTV,
