- Board and volunteer management: Nonprofit managers are responsible for working with the board of directors and managing volunteers. This involves recruiting, training, and supervising volunteers and board members, and developing policies and procedures to ensure effective governance and management.
- Public relations and marketing: Nonprofit managers must promote the organization and its mission to the public. This involves developing marketing strategies, managing social media, and building relationships with the media and other stakeholders.
- Legal and regulatory compliance: Nonprofits are subject to a variety of legal and regulatory requirements, including tax laws, employment laws, and reporting requirements. Nonprofit managers must ensure compliance with all relevant laws and regulations.
