Lexington 0911 Section January 2020 Meeting: Conley Salyer-Expanding the Nonprofit Business Model to School Districts
The Kentucky Center for Performance Excellence (KyCPE) is a nonprofit tax-exempt Kentucky corporation that is the Kentucky affiliate of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award Program. Since 2004, KyCPE has offered the Baldrige improvement model to Kentucky organizations (application, evaluation of applications and awards).
In 2013, the KyCPE board tasked Conley Salyer with expanding KyCPE's business model by offering consulting services to help organizations improve. From 2013-2016, KyCPE participated in a grant program from the Kentucky Department of Education (KED) to work with individual school districts on process improvement and strategic planning. When that funding ended, Conley created a new approach to fund KyCPE's consulting services. That model, and how it has evolved in the school transportation arena is the subject of this month’s discussion.
About our Speaker:
Conley Salyer lives in Lexington, KY with his wife, June, and is fortunate to have his son and family living in Lexington. He attends all the U.K. women's basketball games, but is more of a sports enthusiast than sports fan. Conley is an attorney with wide ranging experience across most fields in the law, who also manages KyCPE's consulting operations. He now limits his law practice to nonprofit organizations. Conley has experience as a businessman, nonprofit CEO, and directed all of West Virginia's small business programs from 2001-2006. He also enjoys working and living in France for two months each year.
