Nonprofit Professional Development
As a nonprofit professional, there are many opportunities for you to build or sharpen your skill set and expand your network. Nine years ago, I was looking for a professional development opportunity. I was newish in the association field and had not found a convention, conference, or other training opportunity that felt right to me. They were too small, too big, too basic, and on and on. At the suggestion of a colleague, I looked at the continuing education opportunity available through The Institute for Organization Management.
In doing my research on what Institute had to offer, I found that the core and elective classes offered the perfect balance of what I needed to know and what I wanted to know. The Institute program is offered at five sites and I chose to attend the Midwest site.
Full disclosure, I am an Institute graduate (Midwest, 2012) and I currently serve on both the Midwest Board of Regents and the National Board of Trustees.
Institute’s curriculum educates attendees on all facets of running a nonprofit organization. The program consists of four, weeklong sessions at five different sites across the country. Traditionally, participants will attend one site per year.
There are several strengths to the program:
So, if you are like I was and still haven’t found the right answer to your professional development needs, you might want to consider Institute. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best of luck in whatever professional development path you choose.
