“Nonprofits are facing tremendous challenges right now and their work couldn’t be more important than at this moment,” said Marnie Taylor, President and CEO of the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits and Chair of the National Council of Nonprofits Board of Directors. “From promoting individual and public health and enriching lives through the arts to advancing social justice, nonprofits are part of the fabric of our economy and our communities. But the continuing pandemic and worsening workforce shortages are challenging nonprofits like never before.  These five leaders bring not just a wealth of knowledge, but also a reputation for strengthening nonprofits’ ability to serve their communities. I look forward to working with them as the National Council of Nonprofits continues to connect, champion, and inform nonprofits across the country.”
