Annually, NICNE invites nonprofit organizations to discuss current issues and trends in the various nonprofit sectors and identify changing needs. The Dialogue solicits collaborative opportunities to address issues and emphasize the value of the nonprofit sector in the community. Results of the Dialogue are used in developing and enhancing programs offered by NICNE.

A full refund less a one percent (1%) cancellation fee will be granted to a registrant who notifies us about his or her cancellation at least five business days prior to the start of the course/program. After this date, no refund will be given unless the Northern Illinois Center for Nonprofit Excellence cancels the course/program. Registrants may apply the tuition to another course/program offered by the center, if they contact us five days prior to the start of the course/program. Failure to attend a course/program does not entitle a registrant to a refund. Cancellations must be confirmed in writing by registrants.

All courses/programs will be held during inclement weather unless Rockford College closes its campus. If the Center cancels a program due to weather, the program will be made up during the same semester or an opportunity will be offered for registrants to make up a program the next time the program is offered by the Center. Failure to attend due to inclement weather does not entitle a registrant to a refund or make-up session.
