MANP's Leader to Retire in 2016
As communicated to our members on Friday, we are announcing the planned retirement of MANP’s Executive Director, Scott Schnapp on or about June 30th, 2016. Scott has expressed a desire to transition from being a full time leader of a nonprofit organization to part-time project work, both in Maine and nationally. He also sees this transition as an opportunity to have more time to travel and enjoy family and leisure pursuits.
Scott began his service as MANP’s Executive Director in June of 2002. During his tenure our nonprofit membership has grown from under 400 to over 750, Friends of MANP membership has grown from 40 to 140, and the following MANP programs, services, and resources were developed to help nonprofit staff and volunteers to:
- SkillBuilders Management Training Program
- Board Boot Camps
- Nonprofit Finance Conference
- Leadership Institute for New Executive Directors
- The Answer Center Resource Library
- Guiding Principles + Practices for Nonprofit Excellence in Maine
- Executive Leadership Forums
- Community Catalyst Celebration + Award
- Yellow Pages Vendor + Consultant Directory
- Nonprofit Job Board
The foundation he has put in place at MANP will continue to support our nonprofit membership through this important transition period and beyond. Scott is leaving MANP in a strong financial and strategic position.
We are extremely proud of what MANP has achieved under Scott’s leadership. For 13 years he has been an effective voice for the sector and his passion for strengthening the capacity of nonprofit organizations has helped enhance the sector’s impact.
The MANP Board has developed a transition committee and will be starting a search for a new Executive Director over the next few months. In the meantime we hope that you will reach out to Scott to share your thoughts and appreciation for his many contributions to the nonprofit sector’s success.
President, Board of Directors
