Seminars in Nonprofit Excellence

Nonprofit leaders - board and staff - throughout the region are encouraged to participate in BTCF’s “Seminars in Nonprofit Excellence,” a series of workshops designed to provide essential guidance and professional development. 

Berkshire Taconic recognizes that providing nonprofits with the tools to guide their organizations in this new economy is vital to their long term survival and to maximize services for our communities. Managing a nonprofit is no small feat in these challenging times. These seminars are intended to help our nonprofits stay at the top of their game so that they cannot only survive but thrive.


Attendance by more than one member of each organization is encouraged to maximize the benefit of the information. The seminars are taught by leading professionals on a variety of timely subjects.

The seminars provide opportunities for:

  • Professional development
  • Board development
  • Management guidance
  • Leadership education
  • Fundraising instruction
