Professional development is a key strategy for nonprofit capacity-building in our community; it strengthens individual, organizational, and sector effectiveness. The focus of these sessions will be needs-based; topics will be generated by the network. The intent is to provide a broad range of high quality, inexpensive learning opportunities.
Typically a half day, or occasionally a full day, these topics are wide-ranging, meant to target specific topics that are relevant and practical and generally there is a low fee.
