The Adirondack Nonprofit Business Council (ANBC), of the ARCC, is excited to welcome on three new members. The ANBC was formed in 2013 and as an initiative of the ARCC, provides a forum to foster peer-to-peer interaction, a symposium to promote awareness, and other programs that strengthen the capacity of non-profit organizations.
The mission of the ANBC is to integrate nonprofits by sharing operational best practices, providing access to connections for nonprofit leadership, and serving as a vehicle that brings greater awareness of the resources and programs available regionally. Welcome to our three new members!
