The event was held on Friday, September 30, 2022, in partnership with the Center for Nonprofit Strategy and Management in Baruch College.


The new book, Resilience: A New Framework for Nonprofit Management, received a glowing review by The Philanthropist Journal.

The journal stated, “The COVID-19 pandemic has tested the resilience of many organizations. In their practical and timely book, Dennis Young and Elizabeth Searing take the opportunity to look at the larger question of preparedness in sector groups for dealing with circumstances – society-wide or unique to a specific organization – that threaten their viability.
