Information session on Wed. 12:30 and 7:00 p.m.

I will be hosting the semester information session at the Education Pavillion at The Nature Conservancy at Nags Head. The information session is designed to provide basic information about the Duke Nonprofit Management Program and the courses it offers. The information session must be completed before you can register for any of the program's classes.
You can also complete the information session online at the Nonprofit Management Program website.
Hope to see you in the woods or at one of the classes.
