Team NLC News

Despite what has been one of the most challenging years in recent history, 2020 has revealed that the nonprofit sector represents what is possible and positive in our world. During the Nonprofit Leadership Center’s 2020 Leadership Conference on October 13, NLC CEO Emily H. Benham, FAHP, CFRE, gave an encouraging report about the state of the nonprofit sector.

“When I think about the nonprofit sector, our response, our creativity, and how we develop and strengthen communities through our individual and collective actions, I am inspired by our courage — not just during this time, but consistently at all times. May we all continue to lead courageously in the days ahead.”
