Save the Date – Nonprofit Leadership Recharge Series

Join CFMC and Jim Hess, Legacy Business Consultants, for a two-part Nonprofit Leadership series and a morning away from your organization to refresh and recharge amongst other Morgan County nonprofits!

We recognize that during the pandemic, first responders, healthcare workers, and teachers were recognized for their hard work during unprecedented times.  All the while, our Morgan County nonprofits served increased needs with fewer resources.  We want to take the time to celebrate your hard work and encourage your leadership. While we are grateful to organizations who serve and fund nonprofits, this series is for executive leadership from our county’s nonprofits who provide programming and services to residents of Morgan County. 

Each session will cover different leadership material, so join us for either or both.

Meet Our Nonprofit Leadership Recharge Series Facilitator

After 27 years in the corporate world, Jim Hess ventured into business ownership. His broad experience with business operations, management, and customer service in different industries and positions prepared him for the variety of responsibilities of a business owner.

To independently operate two businesses, Jim developed and applied time management and efficiency skills to manage all operations of both businesses without compromising personal commitments. His strategies cover customer service, financials, marketing, training, and sales. Under his ownership he has streamlined operations to allow both businesses to grow significantly into successful and prosperous companies.

Jim’s desire to help others is woven through his professional life, exemplified by being recognized with Northwest Airlines’ President’s Award for Inspiration and Support. He was also named Town Planner Publisher of the Year in 2017 for his business operation and was asked to share his experience as the keynote speaker at the 2019 annual conference. Jim has served in several top leadership roles with business and community organizations from chambers of commerce to international networking organizations. He presently serves on the Board at Sheltering Wings. Additionally, he has held leadership positions at his church for several decades. Now, Jim and his wife, Sheree, are leaders of one of their church’s small groups.

His commitment to people permeates his personal life as well, through his continued support and work in missions. He played an instrumental role by applying his administrative, relational, and policy skills, to improve life for people in the remote African town of Dourou. He helped to shape funding and construction of a dam, obtain and install a grain grinder for food production, and provide Bibles in their native language.
