As I was reading the assignments for Thursday, I noticed some overlap in material covered by another book I'm working my way through as part of my internship with Exec. Dir. Marta Weldon at the Fox Valley Symphony.
Marta assigned me Managing a Nonprofit Organization in the Twenty-First Century by Thomas Wolf. It gives a great summary, chapter-by-chapter, of the need-to-know subjects for nonprofit managers. This book was my first exposure to accounting concepts, and marketing and fundraising ideas that I had not considered before. The book provides great background knowledge to build upon with experience both in the classroom and working in the field.
