Nonprofit Webinars Season 12

With the passing of Labor Day 2012 we'll be ready to launch the fall season of our free weekly professional development webinars for staff and trustees of nonprofits.

This time we'll be joined not only by 6 new and 18 returning presenters, but also by a new sibling, IdeaEncore, the premier resource sharing site for nonprofits, which was adopted over the summer by our parent organization Good Done Great. Together we'll be developing synergies in knowledge sharing for the benefit of nonprofits worldwide.

In the first time slot each Wednesday we address issues of governance, management and organizational development. The second slot is devoted to all aspects of institutional advancement

Over that time we have had more than 35,000 registrations, including attendees from all 50 states and 6 continents.
