The creation of the Nonprofit Association of Oregon is a remarkable achievement. The organization and management (not to mention diplomatic!) skills needed to coordinate the formation of such an umbrella organization are formidable. Read the Oregonian story (6/14/07, byline, Wade Nkrumah) on the new association and information on the sponsoring organization, TACS, here.
Those of us who serve the nonprofit world value highly what we call the Oregon nonprofit bible, the TACS Oregon Nonprofit Corporation Handbook and look forward to even more information and support from the Nonprofit Association of Oregon.
Factoid: if the information cited in the Oregonian story is correct, about 141,000 Oregonians are employed by nonprofits.
