Galilee International Management Institute (formerly Galillee College, est. 1987); a leading international management-training institute announces a Special Capacity-Building Seminar on Management of NGOs, scheduled to be held at the Institute Study Centre in Israel from 29th August – 12th September, 2012.
The seminar has been designed for directors and senior officials in non-governmental organisations. It addresses the current role of NGOs in community development and challenges NGO leaders in their efforts to build their organisations. The seminar provides participants with a learning environment that promotes and encourages the exchange of ideas and experiences and builds international links among NGO leaders.
In recent years the number and scope of non-governmental organisations, responsible for health, education, the economy and the environment, has greatly increased. They are highly influential in communities, at the grass-roots level, in the planning and implementation of social and economic policy. Increasingly, NGOs mediate the relationship between the private and public sectors and facilitate private sector investment in community development and the environment. Therefore, effective leadership and creative management of NGOs are crucial to gain advantage in the competition for the limited resources available to the public sector.
Galilee Institute takes as its mission to sustain development through capacity building. Based on our institution’s scholarship policy, the Institute Board have decided to grant Tuition Scholarships* to qualified candidates. We would therefore like to invite your organisation to nominate a candidate for the programme. Nominees must hold a university degree or have vast work experience within the field and be fluent in English.
Should you wish to recommend a candidate or participate yourself, register online via http://www.galilcol.ac.il/courses/programs/course.asp?courseID=49, or contact the Programme Director by fax or email.
*This does not include the airfare to and from Israel and the living expenses while the participant is in Israel, which are covered by the candidate, employer or other sponsor.
