ManchesterProgram aims to inspire service with nonprofits

The NH Center for Nonprofits is seeking applications for the next cohort of the Hoffman-Haas Fellowship. Scheduled to launch in March in Manchester, the program is designed to engage, prepare and inspire its fellows to serve on nonprofit boards.

“Board service is a fabulous way to develop leadership skills and increase impact in your community, but it’s not your typical volunteer role,” said Kathleen Reardon, CEO of the Center. “Through the Fellowship, we hope to position future board leaders for an optimal experience, which starts with a solid foundation in governance and strategy.”

The Fellowship responds to the critical need in the nonprofit sector for an expanded and diverse pool of community leaders who are ready to bring their talent, passion and commitment to volunteer board service. Hoffman-Haas Fellows are individuals with a strong desire to be effective civic leaders and actively engage in issues which impact their community by applying their leadership, management and strategic problem-solving skills to nonprofit board service.

The Center is currently accepting applications and nominations for both fellows and mentors. The application deadline for Fellows is Feb. 7. For information and for applications visit the Center website, www.nhnonprofits.org, or call the Center at 225-1947.
