Effective nonprofit leadership requires a wide set of skills including managing finances, raising funds, leveraging technology, and ensuring accountability. It's not easy. That's why we have designed our BreakFACTS seminars to meet your needs.

BreakFACTS is an affordable monthly training program beginning promptly at 9 a.m., and ending at 12:00 p.m. An optional roundtable discussion facilitated by CNM staff is offered from 12 p.m. - 12:30 to discuss your learnings. Registration opens at 8:30 a.m. and coffee and a continental breakfast is offered throughout the morning. *Location of BreakFACTS may vary, but is held typically either in the Joseph W. Martin Institute for Law & Society on campus, or in the Brocktonian Room at 16 Belmont Street, Easton, MA 02357.

All BreakFACTS seminars are designed for managers and decision-makers of small to mid-sized nonprofit organizations who serve the southeastern Massachusetts and northern Rhode Island community.

Organizations everywhere have had to adapt to unpredictable external environments these past few years by thinking creatively and strategically. The Center for Nonprofit Management invites local organization leaders to focus this year on creating even more resourceful nonprofits.

We encourage you to attend one or all of the workshops CNM offers. With topics ranging from implementing strategic plans to developing advisory councils, we hope you'll join us for one or more of these wonderful sessions!
