Millersville University’s outreach program, Nonprofit Resource Network (NRN), will host an event at Millersville University-Lancaster, 42 N. Prince Street, on September 2 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. in the third-floor Salon.

The NRN will host the free networking event for nonprofit and business leaders, in partnership with the Lancaster County Community Foundation, Leadership Lancaster and the Duke Street Business Center.

“We are very proud of what the network accomplished over the last three years. We have enrolled over 1,000 participants, have expanded our service area to 14 areas and have weekly office hours in Harrisburg. We believe this move to our new downtown location in Lancaster will only enhance our accessibility and ability to serve the community,” said Dr. Victor DeSantis, dean of the College of Graduate and Professional Studies. “The NRN is a great example of how the University partners with other community resources to continue improving the region’s economic and social sectors.”

Prior to the networking event, Creating Powerful Networks: Unleashing Fall 2010 Nonprofit Resources, the NRN is holding three mini-workshops to introduce its fall programs. The workshops are titled: “Fundraising as a Career: What, Are You Crazy?,” “The 12 Essential Management Competencies” and “How Project Management Can be Used in YOUR Nonprofit.”

The Nonprofit Resource Network enhances the effectiveness of nonprofit organizations, providing professional development, networking opportunities and access to critical information resources.
