This trillion dollar nonprofit sector includes education, research, health care, art, culture, religion, communications, social welfare and services, advocacy, legal services, international assistance, foundation and mutual benefit professional and trade associations. We will explore the unique leadership and decision making skill, organizational attributes, accountability and ethical demands of the nonprofit sector with primary emphasis on 501C nonprofits.
