Our core programs are designed to increase the management capacity of nonprofit organizations. Nonprofit capacity building refers to activities that improve and enhance a nonprofit organization’s ability to achieve its mission and sustain itself over time. One of the many benefits of Membership with NICNE is a discount on our capacity-building programs. By taking advantage of these discounts, your Membership may pay for itself!
Be sure to view our Events page for an up-to-date list of all upcoming programs.
This program is designed to support the changing demands on nonprofit leaders to enhance their management skills and operate more effectively. The five courses (one offered in the Fall, four in the Spring) will strengthen participants’ abilities in Leadership and Governance, Marketing, Human Resources, Financial Management, and Fund Development, and would be valuable to a wide range of nonprofit participants: employees, managers, board members, new leaders, as well as those seeking to transfer from the for-profit to nonprofit world.
Each fiscal year NICNE offers a board training opportunity. In 2016 we welcomed internationally known speaker and author Kim Klein for a seminar titled, “Don’t Leave Money on the Table: Creating an Upgrading Team.” These workshops are designed for current board members, potential board members, and nonprofit executive staff members interested in current information for changing times and effective governance.
NICNE offers two and four hour sessions at your site that are customized to your organization’s particular needs. These trainings (offered at the time and location that is convenient for your board) help keep your board of directors current, cohesive, and on target with your mission.
Join us for cutting-edge discussion and an open exchange of information and best practices related to volunteerism. All are welcome to join this free, self-facilitated group on the first Wednesday of every month from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. in room 204 of the NIU – Rockford building (8500 E. State Street).
