Executive Director, Dean Wong L. Dean Wong Appointed to Board of Governors of National Association of Nonprofit Organizations & Executives (NANOE)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington D.C. – 1/4/2017 – The National Association of Nonprofit Organizations and Executives (NANOE), is pleased to announce the appointment of L. Dean Wong of Imua Family Services in Kahului, to their 2017 Board of Governors. Wong will be honored alongside fellow Governors on March 7-8, 2017 in Columbia, S.C. at NANOE’s 2017 Capacity-Building Convention & Expo. This 2-day caucus is critical to the future of charities and will rely on a myriad of industry experts to renew, improve, strengthen and distribute a new set of guidelines that super-charge nonprofit capacity-building.
“Charity” has been paralyzed by a set of failed “best practices” that turned the Non-Profit Sector into a Non-Growth Sector decades ago. Present day systems were established in the late 1950’s by industry associations that persist today in methodologies detrimental to charities and the general public. In response, the National Association of Nonprofit Organizations & Executives (NANOE) formed a working group of thought-leaders (renowned practitioners, volunteers, academicians and philanthropists from around the world) to research and develop a new set of capacity-building “competencies” that empower nonprofits in ways previously thought to be impossible. This esteemed group has completed phase one and will submit 60 new key practices to NANOE’s Board of Governors who will review, expand and/or redact these key practices during the annual convention and will emerge with a new set of competencies that increase sector’s impact.
Headquartered in Washington, D.C., NANOE is the only unifying national association for charitable organizations and executives who serve the human welfare, education, healthcare, faith-cause, environmental and arts sectors.
