Organizational Meeting Set for Sept. 13
LA PLATA, Md. (Sept. 1, 2010)—The College of Southern Maryland has announced their plans to found the Southern Maryland Non-Profit Institute to support the regions non-profit organizations. CSM officials say the institute will provide a variety of activities, such as low-cost training, networking opportunities and consultation services to non-profit organizations in southern Maryland.
Non-profit organizations enrich the lives of all Southern Marylanders by providing social services such as hospice, counseling, food banks and mentoring--and they provide enrichment through museums, parks and the arts, said CSM President Dr. Brad Gottfried. Because of the economy, many non-profits are struggling financially and we want to do what we can to help.
An organizational meeting will be held on Monday, Sept. 13 at 8:30 a.m. in the Business and Industry Building (BI), Room BI-113, on the La Plata Campus. Chief executive officers and board members of Southern Maryland non-profit organizations are invited to attend to help craft the institutes initial directions. A complementary continental breakfast will be served.
