“CNS offered a Learn@Lunch series of workshops in my area covering some great fundraising and board development topics. These workshops were inexpensive, accessible, and thoughtfully executed in a “bite-sized” fashion to reach busy non-profit staff and volunteers with vital information. L@L is a great model and will make me look for more CNS programming. Thank you for being a great resource for non-profits, CNS!”

Emily James, Heartland Humane Society


“Wonderful resource for anyone involved in non-profit work! Awesome seminars, fun networking & valuable education/information! I recommend CNS to all of my colleagues!”

Amber Merrifield, Sutherlin Area Chamber of Commerce


“Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge with us small organizations who thrive to make our resources to value two or three times more! As the director of The TREE Institute, which is formed by Latinas/os and works with very low income populations of immigrants, I have been seeking simple and low cost ways to train and develop our Board of Directors. The ‘10 Minutes Board Exercises’ books are great!”

Sandra Hernandes, The TREE Institute


“Great workshop in Pendleton today. The presentation about risk management was wonderful, and I feel confident about my organization’s processes. Thank you!”

Velda Arnaud, Pendleton Chamber of Commerce
