Institute for Nonprofit Innovation and Excellence set to open

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (June 23, 2014) – A new management support organization at Tallahassee Community College will give nonprofits greater opportunities to grow and thrive.

The Institute for Nonprofit Innovation and Excellence will open Tuesday, June 24, at 7:30 a.m. with a breakfast and a soft-launch presentation from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at the TCC Capitol Center. The presentation will feature four speakers and keynote remarks from Jim Murdaugh, TCC president.

“Nonprofits are vitally important to our local economy and quality of life,” said Kimberly Moore, vice president for workforce development. “We educate the community on the importance and the breadth of the nonprofit sector.”

In addition, the INIE provides its member organizations with targeted education and training programs, community connections, up-to-date policy information, cost-saving programs, information about data trends and best practices, and pro bono legal services.

The INIE will enhance the capacity and leadership of more than 600 local nonprofit organizations through advocacy, education and engagement, as well as facilitate networking and peer learning opportunities for its members. The nonprofit industry employs more than 13,000 people in the Big Bend region alone.

“The Institute for Nonprofit Innovation and Excellence offers a great way to inspire economic growth and progress in our area,” said Murdaugh.

Scheduled speakers and topics for the soft-launch event include Liza McFadden, president of the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy, who will speak on volunteering; Ron Sachs, president and CEO of Sachs Media Group, discussing crisis communication; Alfredo A. Cruz, program officer for economic opportunity at the Foundation for Louisiana, presenting on fundraising; and Bennett Napier, president and CEO of Partners in Association Management, who will speak on board governance.
