The Center for Nonprofit Excellence, sponsored by United Way of Central New Mexico, provides ongoing low-cost training opportunities for nonprofits. If you are in the Albuquerque area, you may want to take advantage of their resources in training and other areas. We are also delighted that they have asked that our training series be advertised through their website, so we hope to see some regional nonprofits take advantage of our training sessions as well.
