September 2017: A Note From Merv

For many of us… “Back to School” means “Back to Business.” Vacations are over, kids are back in school, white clothes are mothballed for another year. Parents, grandparents, and all adults can finally re-invest and re-commit time and effort into tackling all those New Year’s Resolutions instead of carrying them over into another year (only 3 months away).
At CNPE, we want to help you cross off any professional development resolutions on your list.

Are you ready for your end of year campaign? Join us for Jumpstart Your Planned Giving Program and get your year-end asks in order. Need to expand your financial literacy both personally and organizationally? Our Personal Financial Empowerment Series and Nonprofit Finance Certification Series, respectively, can help. Is your board out of shape? CNPE’s Board Chair (and Executive Director) Boot Camp and our one-day ShipShape Board Development Program (registration opening soon) can get your Governance structure back in shape. Plus, our Annual Conference this October will feature a day full of learning with sessions focused on Change, Communication, and Annual Giving PLUS a dedicated session for TED-style critical community conversations.

Let’s go back to school together this fall!
