Nonprofits are small businesses—and they are managed by both paid professionals and volunteers. The many facets of nonprofit management are often learned through trial and error, years of on-the-job training, and continuing education. However, now you can get valuable training online through this certificate program.
This 12-week program provides nonprofit and association leaders and staff professionals with a practical, effective, comprehensive, and convenient learning experience. It covers all aspects of association management and includes online study plus print-based study modules covering the domains of association management.
As you progress through the modules, you will also participate in online discussions about program topics with your peers. You'll also have the opportunity to ask an experienced association executive to clarify key points and answer content-related questions online. This sessions's moderator is Sandra Nelson, CAE, Director, Governance and Operations, Texas Pharmacy Association.
