Nonprofit Management Academy Continues 2004-05 Series With HR Seminar

The Nonprofit Management Academy announces the fifth monthly seminar in its year-long series for 2004-05. "Human Resources Management" will be presented on Thursday, December 16, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Coral Ridge Mall Community Room, 1451 Coral Ridge Avenue, Coralville.

This seminar will focus on the challenges of attracting and retaining employees on a nonprofit budget. Participants will learn the fundamentals of developing jobs, screening and interviewing applicants and appraising employees; and current employment laws and their impact on nonprofit organizations will be examined. The seminar will focus on the core skills for effectively managing the majority of most nonprofit organizations' budgets -- human resources.

The trainer for the session is Maureen McCormick, director of staff development at the University of Iowa.

The fee for the seminar is $50, and CEU credits are available; participants may enroll in individual courses or a program leading to a Certificate in Nonprofit Management.

The Nonprofit Management Academy is a joint project sponsored by the Women's Resource and Action Center (WRAC) and the Iowa Nonprofit Resource Center at the University of Iowa, Iowa State University Extension, United Way of Johnson County, Iowa Shares, and the Iowa Women's Foundation.
