CNM CONNECT Nonprofit Management Certificate Program

The Nonprofit Management Certificate program is a series of seven full-day sessions that provide in-depth instruction on the key components of the operations of nonprofit organizations.

Recently redesigned into a cohort model, the program allows the class to work together to understand the scope of the nonprofit sector. A mix of theory and practice, the certificate program covers governing, leading and managing, resource acquisition, outcomes evaluation, risk management and legal, and marketing. As a cohort, students learn together what it takes to operate a human service organization in a rapidly changing environment.

Our instructors come from varied business and educational backgrounds with track records of success in their respective fields and areas of expertise.

Program Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to identify major theories of management and explain the relevance of their major principles to the management of nonprofit human service organizations
  • Participants will be able to demonstrate knowledge of the organizational factors that indicate excellence in the management of human service agencies, including incorporation of ethics and values into the management of the organization
  • Participants will be able to demonstrate the components of an organization and the ways in which they should be managed in order to achieve internal consistency and integrity
  • Participants will be able to demonstrate specific knowledge and points of view needed by human service professionals

Gayle Goodman, Executive Vice President of ExperiPro, will teach the final class on June 30 – Branding, Marketing & PR for Nonprofit Organizations.
