Terry McAdam Book Award
We are pleased to open nominations for the 22nd annual Terry McAdam Book Award. Each year, the Alliance for Nonprofit Management reviews books published in the nonprofit sector and awards the Terry McAdam Book Award. The Alliance forms a diverse Award Committee, which seeks nominations for the most inspirational and useful new book published which makes a substantial contribution to nonprofit management. Through the Terry McAdam Book Award, thousands of technical assistance providers, and hundreds of thousands of nonprofits staff and board members, benefit from the very best thinking and ideas in management and governance. The award was designed to commemorate NMA (Nonprofit Management Association) board member and The New York Community Trust Vice President, Terry McAdam, who devoted his life to improving the nonprofit management field and urged us all to write about the sector so that we may better understand it.
