This program is offered at no cost to participants and is designed with nonprofit directors in mind. The NPEP offers a world-class opportunity to assess your organization’s position, as well as enhance valuable skills such as how to better recognize and seize opportunities, and manage day-to-day operations. Participants are also given the opportunity to connect with members of the Jim Moran Institute’s network for advice and support, which is available post-graduation for guidance and assistance. The NPEP brings in some of the most accomplished experts, business consultants and leaders from around South Florida to teach in the program.

Applicants must be actively involved in running an organization that has been in existence for at least three years and has three or more employees. 25 applicants are accepted per session. Whether an applicant seeks a more global perspective, better ways to seize opportunities or greater insight into managing day-to-day operations, the NPEP can help.
The inaugural program will kick off on Tuesday evening, July 25, 2017, with an orientation and opening reception from 4:30 – 6:30pm; the first training session will start that Wednesday. The program’s nine sessions will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at various Palm Beach county locations every other week through Nov. 15.
