Staff News: Two Staff Members Complete Courses at the Center for Nonprofit Management

No comments:

On behalf of Brett Batterson and the staff here at the Auditorium Theatre of Roosevelt University, I'm pleased to congratulate Director of Development Kevin Fitzpatrick and Donor Relations Manager Amanda Martinez on their successful completion of courses at the Kellogg School of Management's Center for Nonprofit Management!

As part of our commitment to education both in the community and internally amongst our staff, we sent Kevin and Amanda "back to school" to increase their understanding of current non-profit management trends and techniques. Over four weeks of classes, Kevin and Amanda took courses in fundraising, marketing, fundraising in tough economic times, and nonprofit finance.

"It was helpful t to discuss the current challenges within the nonprofit industry with our instructors and peers as well as bounce ideas off them. Also, hearing success stories from other organizations and from the Kellogg professors gave Kevin and me some great techniques we can start using right away," said Amanda.

Once again, congratulations to both Kevin and Amanda and we look forward to seeing them put what they've learned to use!
