Lane County Nonprofit Network (LCNN)

In these challenging times, effective nonprofit leadership is more important than ever. This ongoing learning opportunity weaves together theory, experience, and context to help leaders deal creatively with the full range of organizational issues. NAO’s Lane County Nonprofit Network helps nonprofit professionals and volunteers strengthen general management skills from fundraising to financial management to effective supervision. Each session is designed to strengthen your management skills while providing field-tested concepts and tools to take back to your organization for implementation. In addition to skills development, each session allows for networking and peer coaching in a collaborative learning environment.

Who Should Attend? 

This series serves the Lane County and Southern Willamette Valley nonprofit community and is designed for nonprofit leaders and volunteers who want to learn more about effective nonprofit leadership within a community of peers.
