ATTENTION – Due to current CDC recommendations regarding COVID-19, CNM has put our public seminars and certificate programs on hold for April. We will miss engaging with you in learning about important nonprofit topics, but we know it is in the best interest of the health and well-being of our community to forgo these programs at this time. In the meantime, please check out our May and June courses. Registration is open. We look forward to being together with you again later this spring!
