Welcome to the network of the Association of CNPs! I am confident that you will find the training and resources available through the Association an invaluable asset to guide you along your career path. The Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) credential is the only national credential that combines critical skills and knowledge, practical experience and a national perspective; this is what makes you unique: you are now part of a national network and are highly qualified to lead in the social sector.
The Association of CNPs is a powerful, well-connected network of individuals who are passionate about making an impact on the world. As part of the Association, you have access to fellow CNPs, whom you can connect with at any time. Often times, when CNPs are moving to a different part of the country or around the world, the Association can help connect them to fellow CNPs that live in the area. This means you will have a network available to you no matter where you are in the world.
Regardless of whether you earned your CNP because of career aspirations or simply because you are a community-minded human being, you are poised to make the greatest impact possible with the CNP credential.
The Association of CNPs offers many opportunities for networking and learning. I hope you will continue to invest in yourself and your community so that together we can achieve the Alliance’s vision of our world, only better.

Immediate Past President, Association of CNPs
