What Participants Say

"Although I have worked in the nonprofit sector for over 20 years, the EIA experience provided immediate and usable tools that helped enhance my knowledge to become a more skilled nonprofit professional. It was great to interact face-to-face with individuals of all educational backgrounds and levels of experience that were committed to their organization’s mission and seeking to advance in their professional development just like me. I learned up-to-date trends affecting the nonprofit sector today and ways to lead and manage staff, volunteers, and board members more effectively. The knowledge learned in strategic planning, marketing, fundraising and resource development is invaluable."

"The EIA Certificate program allowed me to develop my professional growth as a nonprofit leader, as well as identify where my organization was at risk in all the critical components. Each certification provided unique, comprehensive tools I could immediately implement. The instructors were ‘masters’ in their field of expertise and provided insight into real-life applications. The information was so valuable I could not take the certifications fast enough! The nonprofit sector has long awaited a certification program of this caliber. It was well worth the investment of both my time and money."

“Our museum completed The EIA Certification Program in 2016.  Because we improved our organizational capacity thru EIA, we submitted an improved grant application with solid data that earned us a grant award of over one million dollars to expand the museum.  We fully credit EIA with preparing us for this opportunity.”

“Very good. Excellent program. Should be mandatory for all board members.”

“I learned so much more in EIA than I did in my master’s Social Work Program. This should be required for MSCW’s!”
