NCNE’s Research Advisory Network is a selective group of scholars and professional analysts with expertise in the economics and management of nonprofit organizations and other social enterprises, in the United States and worldwide. The Network serves as a talent pool and knowledge resource for NCNE’s programming on behalf of nonprofit organizations, which may include professional and research conferences, education and training programs, organizational consultations, information and referral services, and research projects.

Members of the Network are selected and appointed by the leadership of NCNE based on their special expertise on diverse topics related to effective resource-related decision making by nonprofit organizations. Members serve on a voluntary basis but may be reimbursed for costs and compensated for their work at modest levels for specific tasks they undertake on behalf of NCNE.

Members are listed on NCNE’s website, social media, publications, brochures and other documents. Members contribute to NCNE’s knowledge base by posting relevant publications on NCNE’s website. Members of the network are also asked to advise NCNE leadership on future programming and important issues related to NCNE’s mission.
