The fee for the seminar is $50, and CEU credits are available. Participants may enroll in individual courses or in 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 UI, Iowa State University Extension, United Way of Johnson County, Iowa Shares, and the Iowa Women's Foundation.
