How Was I Nominated?

NANOE’s working group spent a full year compiling a list of prospective Governors. Nominations were suggested by members of AFP, CFRE, AHP, ASAE, CASE, United Way, National Development Institute, State Associations, Industry Associations, and other community leaders.

Though many nominations were submitted by a variety of sector leaders, it is probable your name was submitted to the Nominations Committee by the working group who identified you as a person who spends their time in service to the charitable sector.

In Closing:

NANOE Governors believe that “innovation never fears a challenge” and that the greatest contribution nonprofit practitioners can make to charity is to become the creative enterprise-leaders our sector so desperately needs.

    After careful consideration, I have decided to accept this nomination. Why?

    In order to advance our success as fundraisers, we need to compile the lessons learned through experience and collaborate with our peers to review existing best practices and discover new and innovative pathways for ourselves and for those who will carry the mantle forward.
