Schaefer Center hosts series of free events for Maryland nonprofit leaders.

The Schaefer Center for Public Policy offers Maryland nonprofit managers an opportunity to learn from leaders in the community.

Maryland's leaders have the opportunity to gain the comprehensive, applied public-sector management skills needed to meet the complex demands and challenges of a 21st-century public management environment.

The Schaefer Center, in association with Maryland Nonprofits, offers the Certified Public Manager Program® for state, local and nonprofit employees who supervise or manage employees or large projects. Nationally recognized in 40 states with 18,000 graduates, it distinguishes graduates as professionally trained managers of publicly supported programs and organizations. The program runs 15 months in a nonresidential format and accepts cohorts of 25 participants. Learn more.

Now, supervisors and managers in the nonprofit community are invited to learn about the Maryland Certified Public Manager Program® from several of Maryland's nonprofit leaders who serve as advisory board members and from the director of the program. This open house event is free; however, R.S.V.P.s are requested.
