In 2016, Angelina County stakeholders began to discuss the needs of the nonprofit sector in rural East Texas. For many years, East Texas had enjoyed resources, donor support and an abundance of ready volunteers. With the graying of leadership and volunteers, cultural changes, and donor solicitation from outside the community, competition for resources dramatically increased. With this, donors began scrutinizing nonprofit management in the areas of finance, human resources, technology, accountability and measurable effectiveness.
Stakeholders recognized that for rural East Texas nonprofits to remain competitive and viable, they needed education and training in leadership skills and in implementing industry best practices.
While a passion for mission and hard work are still valued, training and education in best practices are essential for rural East Texas nonprofits to survive and thrive. Thus, timing and need for the Angelina College Nonprofit Leadership Center (NPLC) was perfect!
As we embark on the post-COVID-19 landscape, we now offer affordable, practical, and high quality (online and in-person) classes throughout the year. Whether professional development or Nonprofit Management Certification seeking, participants will grow in leadership skills. We partner with community leadership including the Lufkin Chamber of Commerce to deliver critical learning opportunities for emerging and tenured nonprofit leadership.
