The Nonprofit Management Institute has been designed to educate nonprofit professionals and equip them with best practices in nonprofit management, leadership, and development. Classes are open to staff at all levels, as well as Board members, volunteers, and anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of the nonprofit sector.

REGISTRATION is now open. ALL CLASSES for winter/spring of 2021, at a minimum, will be held online.* Half day online classes will be held from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm. Full day online classes will be held from 9:00 am – 2:30 pm (plus 1 hour of required pre-work**). Once it is determined safe to move to in-person classes (which we hope will be by August), classes will be back to the original time of 9:00 am – 3:30 pm for full day classes and will stay the same for half day classes (9:00 am – 12:00 pm). Please read new Class Requirements BEFORE registering. Registration closes the Wednesday before each class, at 4:00 pm.
