I suggest using this thread as a way of posting workshops, classes, seminars, etc. that people may be interested in taking. I'll go first.

I do nonprofit fundraising and found the following class through the University of Montana to be the most beneficial. (I took several through their Professional Nonprofit Administration Program.) It's coming up again...

To many, nonprofit professionals and others, strategic planning is a scary and mysterious concept, but it doesn't have to be. De-mystify the process and help your nonprofit tackle the future coherently by participating in this course, offered as part of the University of Montana's Online Professional Certificate Program in Nonprofit Administration, developed in partnership with the Montana Nonprofit Association. This course highlights the importance of leadership for realizing an organization's fullest potential. It also introduces strategic planning--a process by which staff members can bring their shared vision of success into being. The reading assignments are designed to increase knowledge of strategic planning and leadership, and the writing assignments are designed to build personal skill and confidence by asking you to draft a brief strategic plan.

Instructor: Jesse Munro, Adjunct Instructor in Political Science at The University of Montana.

Registration deadline:            September 15, 2010

I can't say enough about The Lifelong Learning Center over on Curtis Street.  While I haven't attended any of the classes myself, I know quite a few people who have been able to attend classes there for free through a vocational rehabilitation program.  Even if you pay out of pocket, the skills you can learn there can help anyone in any career. 

A great example of this is my Mother.  She didn't work for about 30 years and only had basic CNA skills but after a few classes at the Lifelong Learning Center, she knew she could handle a more intense year at the Missoula Vo-tech.  She's now an LPN and loves what she does.  It wouldn't have been possible without that place.

BACKYARD COMPOSTING BASICS WORKSHOP

Saturday, September 11
1:00-3:00 PM @ MUD
Instructor: Stan Wilson (Skills Tour/Permibus -  www.permibus.org)

Having taught permiculture techniques for years, Stan has plenty of first-hand experience with composting, and explaining how it works to others. In this workshop, we will cover lasagna-style composting, vermicomposting & integrating chickens into composting systems. Participants will gain hands-on experience building a layered compost pile using readily available, every day components like straw, leaves & lawn clippings, and vegetable waste, all contained in a simple wire frame.

This will be a great opportunity to learn how easy and low-maintenance composting can be, even if you have limited space. It will also be an excellent opportunity to ask lots of questions of a composter with expert knowledge of composting in western MT.

Pre-registration encouraged!  Register online, call 721-7513 or email info@mudproject.org.  $10 MUD members/$20 non-members; scholarships are available. Contact MUD office for scholarship information.

The Missoula Art Museum offers an Open Figure Drawing for Adults Non-instructed, 6-8 PM, $5/7 This ongoing session provides artists an opportunity to draw from a live model in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. Participants must be 18 years or older.

Does anyone know of something like this that has instruction offered? I looked at the other classes the Museum offers (listed here: http://www.missoulaartmuseum.org/index.php/fuseaction/participate.artClasses.htm) and the closest one I could find is Observational Drawing (six week course, $85), but I was looking for something that is drop in. Any recommendations?
 
Everybody's invited. Even this tiny ad:
