“The Nonprofit Management Certificate Program is a gem, and an opportunity for growth you wont’ find anywhere else. I attended the sessions with a modest goal of learning a bit more about nonprofit management and our local nonprofit community. We have now implemented new internal controls in financial management, surveyed the board to identify skill gaps and are developing a marketing plan to improve our communication strategy. I enjoyed the networking opportunities and now have connections with many other local nonprofits. This program exceeded my expectations and has proven to be a valuable resource to our organization.”
