ETCN Membership

AN INVESTMENT IN YOUR ORGANIZATION

East Texas Center for Nonprofits is committed to helping nonprofits throughout our entire East Texas area by providing management training and coaching services to ensure a stable and sustainable future. Membership is the gateway to a broad range of valuable management expertise, assistance and services for staff, boards, and volunteers, with the advantage of affordable rates.

BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP: Why join the East Texas Center for Nonprofits?

Access. Resources. Discounts! When your organization joins ETCN, every staff member and board member can take advantage of the benefits and will have access to capacity building resources and services.  Because nonprofits all differ, we have provided different membership levels so you can select the one that best meets your needs.

Basic Membership:

If your nonprofit is committed to professional growth and development for your board and staff, you will find the Basic Membership to be a great investment.  Savings through discounts on ETCN training workshops as well as ETCN hourly contract services will more than cover the cost of this level of membership.  Other advantages include: Regional Grant Information, Job Postings on ETCN’s website, Free Annual Networking events, and more!

“Nowhere else in East Texas can one experience this array of services and high level of training that ETCN membership provides for ALL East Texas.” –Brenda Day-Bevis, Executive Director, D.O.R.S Youth Transition Center

Associate Membership:

To provide development for your board of directors to be the productive, purposeful, and strong group your organization needs them to be, the Advanced Membership will help you dig deeper with not only larger discounts for ETCN’s hourly coaching contracts but also one FREE annual Board Member Orientation. If you are ready to move forward more effectively, this level will allow you to jump right in.

“This is a membership from which you can receive actual value that pays for itself- many times over!” –BJ Garrett, Executive Director, (CARE) Christ-Centered Abortion Recovery & Education

Professional Membership:

With all of the benefits available, the Professional Membership will give you access to a seat at our annual Funders Roundtable, free admission to our annual special event (Lecture Series/Bright Ideas), and the opportunity to sit with other knowledgeable nonprofit professionals who value and understand the importance of staying connected and engaged in learning.  

“If you want to stretch your limited funds to maximize your impact as an organization, you need to be a member of ETCN.” –John English MD, Bethesda Health Clinic CEO
