PURCHASE, N.Y. -- At a recent conference hosted by Nonprofit Westchester and the Manhattanville School of Business, the School of Business announced the launch of its nonprofit management certificate program, set to begin in 2015.
The first of its kind in Westchester and Fairfield counties, this program will empower nonprofit professionals with the principles and critical skills needed to effectively lead in today’s expanding and evolving nonprofit world. “This certificate embodies our mission to create programs that address the very specific skill sets needed in each and every sector crucial to the growth of the region's economy,” said Anthony Davidson, dean of the Manhattanville School of Business.
“One of the reasons our program is so unique in terms of concept, what we’re trying to accomplish, and the benefits it brings to the table, is that many of you helped create it,” added Rhonna Goodman, nonprofit management certificate program director, referring to advisory board members present at the conference. The program’s advisory board is made up of eight powerful community leaders whose diverse backgrounds demonstrate their expertise and commitment to the success and needs of area nonprofits.
The advisory board members are Catherine Marsh, executive director, Westchester Community Foundation; Daniel Alcott, partner and chair of the not-for-profit department, Dorf & Nelson; Alisa Kesten, executive director, Volunteer New York!; Maria Imperial, executive director, White Plains and Central Westchester YWCA; Terry Kirchner, executive director, Westchester Library System; Blanca Lopez, director of Neighborhood Preservation Company, Human Development Services of Westchester; Greg Maher, executive director, Leviticus 25:23 Alternative Fund, Inc.; and Joanna Straub, executive director, Nonprofit Westchester. The nonprofit management certificate program entails five month-long modules, focusing on fundraising and development, financial management, external relations, staff management, and marketing. Modules will be delivered in a hybrid format using face-to-face and videoconference sessions.
