WHAT ARE THE DUTIES OF A NON-PROFIT MANAGER?
Non-profit managers are responsible to see that the organization is fulfilling its stated purpose. They oversee the organization's daily operations, including staffing, service delivery, financial leadership and regulatory compliance. In smaller non-profit organizations, managers may oversee an entire operation, while managers in large non-profits often direct departments or divisions of the organization.
ARE NON-PROFIT MANAGERS LICENSED?
Although local or state governments may have their own requirements, non-profit managers are not generally licensed. However, they are responsible to see that their organizations meet local, state and federal requirements for business licensing and for compliance with the purpose for which they were originally chartered and granted non-profit status.
