November and December donations are critical to most nonprofits’ fundraising goals, but coaching staff to stay focused and motivated during these busy months can present challenges.  In addition to seasonal personal and professional obligations that vie for attention, nonprofit managers often have limited resources for bonuses or recognition.  This is an interactive session in which we will discuss a variety of options to motivate and encourage your staff to be peak performers during year end but also year around.  Luncheon participants will be encouraged to share ideas.




Presented by Sarah D. Mott, Of Counsel, Zelle Hofmann Voelbel & Mason LLP (in conjunction with Volunteer Center of the East Bay)


Sarah advises and defends private and public sector businesses in all aspects of employment and labor law throughout California. Her extensive litigation experience includes expertise in wage and hour, disability and national origin discrimination, “whistleblower,” independent contractor, intellectual property and employee benefits issues. Sarah’s cases have ranged from individual plaintiff lawsuits to class actions in both state and federal courts. She has particular expertise in successful motion work at pleading, summary judgment and appellate phases.
