- Think Tank Impact: How to Measure- How to Sell it
June 12, 2013 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EDT
Join us, Wednesday, June 12 for a webinar featuring Niels Veldhius, executive director of the Fraser Institute in Canada as he shares valuable tips for measuring your think tank’s impact. We talk about measurement a lot at Atlas, and believe that it is absolutely imperative for think tanks to consider when building their plans for action. Showing the impact for liberty not only helps you as an organization allocate scarce resources, but allows you to fundraise more successfully, and track your progress as long term changes begin to take shape. Based on the Roadmaps primer on Measurement published in April, Niels will offer his insights from the think tank whose motto is, “If it matters, measure it.”

Tuesday, July 16, 2013 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EDT
Join us, Tuesday, July 16 at 10am EST for a webinar discussing the useful tips and resources for managing the budget of your organization. As a non profit organization, funding can come from many different avenues, general donations, project specific, in kind donations, and it’s your job to ensure your think tank not only accomplishes it’s mission, but continues to grow. Gary Leff, Chief Financial Office of the Mercatus Center at George Mason University will share his insights, based on his Roadmaps piece which will be available soon, online in the Atlas Resource Library.
