Earlier this year, Hawkeye ASTD partnered with the Linn County Nonprofit Resources Center and Mt. Mercy University to provide a low cost-high value day of training for anyone who works or volunteers for a nonprofit organization. Marcie Van Note, VP Development, submitted an application highlighting this successful event to national ASTD’s Sharing Our Success (SOS) program. We were notified this week that our Non-Profit Training Day was selected for an SOS award!
Here is an excerpt from the notification email:
On behalf of the Chapter Recognition Committee, I want to congratulate you and your chapter on your achievement, “Non-Profit Training Day,” which has been approved for recognition.
