ST. GEORGE — As part of their ongoing professional development program, the Utah Nonprofits Association is presenting the training workshop “Human Resources for Nonprofits” featuring Carol Golichnik, owner of CG Nonprofit Solutions. The workshop will take place Wednesday from 8 a.m. to noon.

Nonprofit organizations don’t get a pass when it comes to employment laws, and this training will focus on the most important human resource issues for nonprofits. Attendees will leave feeling comfortable their organization is in compliance or knowing how to move forward to do so.

“This training course provides nonprofits with practical and actionable skills for developing human resource programs based on the latest requirements in terms of legality and best practices,” said Dawn McLain, chair of the Southern Utah Committee of the Utah Nonprofit Association.

While the session is targeted for UNA’s nonprofit membership base, all nonprofit organizations are welcome to participate, and all participants are encouraged to include key team members from their staff and board of directors.

The workshop will discuss a variety of human resource-based compliance and reporting issues, with discussion time allotted for nonprofits to ask questions related to their specific organization or human resource challenges.

“The fact is, human resource laws and strategies are always changing, but accountability remains constant,” McLain said. “It is in the best interest of every organization to keep abreast of the ongoing changes in this area.”

Attendees will also leave with a toolkit to help with everyday human resource decision making issues and tasks.
