Belfast. Ever wonder where the day went? Are you managing projects and staff and just not getting everything done in the day? Then consider the upcoming one-day workshop on Time, Talent and Meeting Management offered in Belfast.


The University of Maine Hutchinson Center’s Nonprofit Certificate Management program is offering the workshop, “Time, Talent and Meeting Management” on Monday, May 13th from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. It is being taught by Dr. Frank Burtnett of Northport, Maine and Springfield, Virginia.


The workshop will present a philosophy for effective employee coaching with non-profit organizations. Coaching skills that have proven to be effective in improving and extending employee work performance will be addressed. A portion of the workshop will be devoted to effective time management skills designed to help participants and the individuals they supervise “arrest time bandits” and become more efficient in time utilization.


Frank Burtnett, Ed.D, is a veteran educator and non-profit organization executive. Frank has thirty years of direct service in various non-profit organizations, educational institutions and community agencies, including seven years as Executive Director of the National Association for College Admission Counseling.


The University of Maine Hutchinson Center, Route 3, Belfast, has designed the certificate program in non-profit organizational management for non-profit organization executives, staff members, and leaders to deal with contemporary issues and problems using realistic, “hands on” strategies. The various workshops will encourage interactive discussion of “real world” situations and actively engage participants in quality planning, effective program/service development, creative problem solving, and issue resolution. This certificate represents yet another of the offerings that the University of Maine Hutchinson Center has created to be responsive to the educational needs of the community.


The non-profit workshops will appeal to those involved in a variety of organizational roles, including executive directors, board/trustee members, business managers, development officers, program officers, and those holding similar positions. Those not currently engaged in non-profit organizational roles—but seeking to move into these career areas—will also gain a great deal from participation in these workshops.
