Please join The Nonprofit Partnership and Strategy Solutions, Inc. for the Standards for Excellence® series: Getting to Know the Standards for Excellence®: Best Practices for a Well-Managed and Responsibly Governed Nonprofit.

What are the Standards for Excellence®, you ask? According to The Standards for Excellence Institute®, the Standards® were "established to promote the highest standards of ethics, effectiveness, and accountability in nonprofit governance, management, and operations."

Accreditation and recognition can be a rigorous process, but the Strategy Solutions team will be there to guide you as you explore this important process.

This series will provide a framework to achieve a well-managed and responsibly governed organization. Each session will be interactive -- there will be the opportunity for participants to share information and ask questions. Join Strategy Solutions for one session or for all -- whatever works best for you and your needs!
