Orange Leap Shine Brighter Series for Nonprofits Features Matt McCabe

Orange LeapDALLAS, Texas, Jan. 30, 2013 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Orange Leap’s Shine Brighter Series features Matt McCabe from Pursuant presenting “I Have A Dream: The Importance of Vision At Every Donor Level” on February 14, 2013.

Simply put, donors give to a vision that stirs their philanthropic passion. This session will explore why nonprofits must prove the efficacy of their vision and work in order to garner long-term, committed donors.

Clarity and articulation of the vision ties all fundraising efforts together. This live webcast will look at the importance of communicating a nonprofit organization’s vision across all donor touch points to ensure continued giving. If donors do not clearly understand where a nonprofit is going, fundraisers cannot expect donors to make the journey.

In this webcast:

* We will review examples of how successful organizations weave their vision through all communications and touch-points. While communicating vision in a Major Donor proposal seems natural, we will also explore how to weave that into acquisitions or ensure it is reflected in a pithy manner on Twitter or Facebook.

* We will review successful strategies that create a donor journey that makes each gift a step towards their participation in fulfilling the organization’s vision and multi-year goals.

* We will review and discuss how vision evolves and grows with the organizations, and how that is seamlessly weaved into effective long-term donor cultivation.

Presented by Matt McCabe, Senior Vice President (Consulting Services) of Pursuant, the webcast will take place on February 14, 2013 at 2 p.m. EST. The webcast is free and attendees may register at http://www.orangeleap.com/shinebrighter.shtml .

Matt is one of today’s leading nonprofit consultants, with experience spanning two decades helping charitable organizations around the world optimize their online marketing and fundraising, integrated marketing, business process and organizational strategy, direct mail, and media and print campaigns.

Green Mountain Energy Company selects Cogent Software to manage Sales Commissions

DALLAS, Texas, May 7, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Cogent Technology Group, Inc. announced today that the Commercial Services Division of Green Mountain Energy Company has expanded their use of Cogent’s Sales Commission Manager (SCM) software product to provide a means of managing the residual sales commissions that flow as ongoing streams of compensation to their independent brokers and sales agents for completed energy-service contracts. Cogent’s SCM software will be used by Green Mountain’s Commercial Services Division in Texas, New York and other markets as Green Mountain expands into them.

Green Mountain is a pioneer in the renewable energy space, operating as the nation’s longest serving provider of green power and the first retail electric provider in Texas to offer renewable energy.

With Cogent’s SCM software running on their internal network, Green Mountain expects to proactively manage the variability of the commission compensation function.

Cogent’s SCM solution is available both as a leased product and as a software service which is hosted in their Atlanta data center. The full-featured SCM product, which offers a wide range of capabilities and an easy-to-use interface, bolts onto the energy marketer’s CIS/Billing data source and calculates commissions as the underlying energy-usage changes. SCM manages the commission function regardless of the frequency of commissioning events or the complexity of the commission methods.

“We find Cogent’s Sales Commission Manager to be a flexible, cost-effective and robust solution that can accommodate our many needs and we look forward to continued utilization of the system as our company expands into new markets.” said Les Montgomery, Vice President of Retail Energy Operations for the Commercial Services Division of Green Mountain Energy Company.

TACPA Announces Quarterly CPE Meeting in San Antonio, Texas

DALLAS, Texas, April 23, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — The Texas Association of Certified Public Accountants (TACPA – www.tacpa.net) announced today the opening of registration for its 2012 Spring Meeting and CPE Sessions. This conference is open to all Texas-licensed CPAs and meets all Texas CPE requirements.

The sessions will include “Compilation, Review and White Paper Engagement Under New SSARs (Statements on Standards for Accounting and Review Services),” IRS Updates, State Tax Essentials, and other topics totaling 12 hours of CPE credit. The conference will begin Friday May 18 at 8 a.m. and the final session will conclude at 3 p.m. on Saturday May 19, 2012.

TACPA presents courses targeted at the needs of the independent practitioner and small-practice CPA.

The conference is designed to provide CPAs, particularly independent or small-office practitioners, the opportunity to accumulate credits towards their annual CPE requirements as well as offer a forum to network with other CPA professionals and share ideas, experiences and best practices.

“These days, many CPAs are completing their CPE requirements online. While that’s a perfectly viable strategy, there still is a need for a place where you can meet with your peers from time to time. When you work independently, it’s awfully nice to be able to occasionally share ideas, thoughts, and experiences face to face,” said Dave Brown, Executive Director of the TACPA.

The 2012 Spring Meeting marks our third quarterly meeting of the fiscal year and will be held May 18 and 19 at:
The Doubletree Hotel – San Antonio Airport
37 NE Loop 410 (@ McCullough)
San Antonio, TX 78216.

Those interested in attending may register at http://conta.cc/SpringCPE .

TACPA will be holding its Annual Meeting and elections in Houston, Texas in August and will host a Fall meeting in Dallas in November. Information on future meetings can be found at the TACPA website: http://tacpa.net .

About TACPA:
The Texas Association of Certified Public Accountants was founded in 2001 to provide a voice to the independent practitioner and small-practice CPA. TACPA is a nonprofit organization dedicated to representing the interests of the small office CPA in Texas.

More Than Skin Deep: Dr. Trevicia Williams Responds to Dallas Texas Being #1 During Women’s History Month

Dr. Trevicia WilliamsDALLAS, Texas, Feb. 22, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Women’s History Month celebrates triumphant women and mothers who empowered themselves through education then nurtured their daughters and paved the way for them to have access as well. A local celebration will be held on Saturday, March 3: “Beauty Inside Out Fierce You” is an event for professional and entrepreneurial women to attend, be empowered, gain personal and business insight through educational seminars, have fun with fashion and build their business networks.

During an equally powerful after-event workshop on Saturday March 3 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Dallas, author and former Texas child bride Dr. Trevicia Williams will extend education and empowerment to mothers and teen daughters while addressing the alarming statistic that Dallas Texas is #1 in the nation for repeat teen pregnancies.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancies teen pregnancies in the U.S. is declining; however, Texas is still number 3 in the nation for teen births.

In the spirit of prevention and healthy relationships, Dr. Trevicia Williams designed the free “Real Beauty Inside Out” workshop for mothers and teen daughters to communicate, connect, build, bond and grow as a result of the interactive intervention.

“Getting through the ‘I Love You But I Can’t Stand You Right Now’ time in the relationship can be tough,” says Dr. Trevicia Williams. Mothers and teen daughters will learn tools for effective communication and the fundamentals of building healthy relationships.

The workshop will also empower mothers and teen daughters during the sometimes stressful and rebellious teen years, says Dr. Trevicia Williams. This limited seating free workshop draws participants from the Dallas, Highland Park and Frisco Independent School Districts.

“Communication is the lifeline of all relationships and this workshop helps mothers and daughters open up,” says Dr. Trevicia Williams.

Psychologist, talk show host and author of child bride memoir, “There Are Pearls In The Pain of Every Experience” (ISBN: 978-0974351988), Dr. Trevicia Williams ( http://www.treviciawilliams.com ), is on a mission to empower girls and women worldwide. From Texas child bride and teen mother to life strategist, Dr. Trevicia shares hard-earned wisdom and real-life strategies that inspire teens and motivate parents to unleash their power to communicate, realize their self-worth, build healthier relationships and realize their fullest potentials.

Dr. Trevicia Williams echoes Dr. Oz, Dr. Phil and Dr. Drew in questioning the effectiveness of reality shows like Teen Mom and MTV’s 16 and Pregnant. The shows focus on the realities of teens during adolescent years and the pains of growing up while being pregnant, but, simultaneously, seem to glamourize teen pregnancy.

“Leah Messer and Chelsea Houska teen mom reality stories can be prevented: Teens should stay teen. We should encourage children to be children, girls to be girls and boys to be boys, while they are children,” says Williams.
