First off, apologies for the paucity of posts as of late. I am smack in the middle of a 12 city/8 week tour of the US (because March and April are incredibly busy training months), and I simply haven't been able to keep up. This week is relatively quiet with only an overnighter for me tonight, so I hope to get more content up than I have over the past 2 weeks.

EVAW is the technical assistance provider on this issue, and they've put out some great information on their site. If you have questions about your own program's compliance, definitely check it out.

I spend so much of my time talking about various online events for continuing education that I sometimes forget 1.) that some people still have money to actually go to trainings and conferences; and 2.) that there's really no substitute for the networking and collegial interaction that goes on at trainings and conferences. For those of you looking at spending some budget funds on live events, March and April are traditionally packed with good stuff, and this year's no exception, no matter what region you're in:

Here's a practical concept for all of you managers: managing up. It's the idea of positioning people so as to accentuate the positive. You can manage up your boss, your staff and even your organization.

Many of you are probably working on some aspect of grant writing and/or fundraising right now. I know I am. So I was really interested in this short article published over at Network for Good on 6 words every nonprofit should avoid. I'm not going to say a lot about it, since it's a pretty self-explanatory piece, except this: all 6 words show up (often) in my most recent grant application.
 
Damn.
