YNPN Southern Nevada would like to share this professional development opportunity for human resource professionals. YNPN Southern Nevada is a participant of the CEO Exchange, an association comprised of the leaders of the largest social services nonprofits in Southern Nevada. The HR Collaborative was formed to give HR professionals in nonprofits an opportunity to learn, share ideas and grow professionally. We believe that strengthening the human resources capacity in the nonprofit sector will help our members and the Southern Nevada nonprofit community as a whole. If you believe this program would be beneficial to your organization, please share it with the relevant members of your staff.
