The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance prepares to celebrate enrollment in its 20th Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) Professional cohort. The cohort of 30-40 professionals will go live September 12, 2023, and bring critical nonprofit tools and content to aspiring leaders. After a decade of providing exceptional leadership development, the nationally recognized CNP Professional Track will undergo its first price increase. Starting September 1st, the program cost will be adjusted to $1,800. However, individuals can still take advantage of the current price of $1,700 if they register before September 1st, 2023.


The CNP Professional Track is a highly regarded 6-month facilitator-led cohort specifically designed to propel social sector leaders to their next level of leadership. This transformative program equips participants with the skills, knowledge, and networking opportunities essential for excelling in the nonprofit sector. The $1,800 registration fee includes tuition, course materials, access to the learner profile portal, a complimentary ticket to Elevate – a virtual conference for social sector leaders, invaluable networking opportunities within our 12k-strong community, and a prestigious digital badge upon completion.
The price adjustment to $1,800 is necessary to ensure we maintain the highest quality facilitators and continue to offer hands-on learning and real-time feedback. The Nonprofit Leadership Alliance believes in compensating our expert facilitators fairly for their time and wealth of experience, and this price increase will help us sustain this commitment. 

We are dedicated to providing top-tier education and fostering a thriving community of nonprofit professionals. This price adjustment will enable us to keep delivering exceptional programs while sustaining equitable compensation for our 
facilitators said Dorothy Norris-Tirrell, Ph.D., CNP, Nonprofit Leadership Alliance Interim President and Chief Learning Officer.
