MANP has something for everyone!

by Kelly McCormack

Upcoming MANP Trainings + Events

Maine nonprofits employ 1 in 6 workers and are a critical part of Maine’s economy; access to professional development is critical to any organization’s talent attraction and development strategy!

After a busy planning period, we are thrilled to highlight upcoming educational programs for this winter and spring that align with timely, pressing topics relevant to your everyday work.

Staff + Volunteer Management
This Wednesday, February 15, Portland attorney Sally Morris will present, A Guide to Workplace Best Practices: How to Promote a Harassment-Free Workplace. This hour-long webinar will offer practical information and tools on how to navigate difficult questions to help ensure workplaces are respectful, positive and productive spaces for all.

Financial Management
Back by popular demond as one of the more sought-after sessions at last year’s Nonprofit Finance Conference, on February 28, Peter Montano and Hadje Esmiller of Macpage will offer the webinar, Implementing the New Not-for-Profit Financial Reporting Standard: A Deep Dive.

Resource + Fund Development
On March 8 in Freeport, Penny Harris and Ellen Maling will present, Fundraising is More Than Money, where participants will gain useful tools for planning a diverse fundraising program and engage in interactive discussions on the challenges and strengths of resource and fund development.

Governance + Leadership
On May 10, our first Board Boot Camp – Basics of the year will be offered in Farmington. This session will specifically cover core nonprofit governance responsibilities for those who are new board members or for those whose organizations have grown beyond their “grassroots” origins, but their boards have not. Stay tuned for Advanced sessions later this year!
