NonprofitWebinars: Season 10

The spring 2012 season of Wednesday Webinars will launch this week. Since January 2010 we have offered free weekly professional development presentations for staff and trustees of nonprofits. Over that time we have had more than 30,000 registrations, including attendees from all 50 states and 6 continents. In their evaluations attendees frequently volunteer that the webinar was one of the best they have attended, free or not.

Webinars are offered every Wednesday at 1:00 Eastern / 10:00 Pacific & 3:00 Eastern / noon Pacific. For more information or to register for any of the webinars, go to

This season we have an even split between new presenters and veterans (about a dozen of each), and a lot of new topics, especially in the area of organizational development. While we are still finalizing a few of the late May sessions, here’s what we have to date:
