The Nonprofit Risk Management Center (NRMC) inspires effective risk management and Risk Champions–nonprofit risk management professionals–across the nonprofit sector. NRMC is an independent, tax-exempt nonprofit organization that provides a wide range of risk education and risk management services to nonprofits, associations, and foundations in the U.S. and internationally. These services include consulting services, training programs, publications, custom web applications, and other educational resources.  Leaders representing an extraordinarily diverse array of organizations engage the NRMC team each year, and our assignments require us to assess and offer recommendations on managing a broad range of strategic, operational, and programmatic risks. The NRMC team often delivers training and custom educational resources on areas of special concern ranging from Enterprise Risk Management to youth protection, crisis management, financial management, program/service delivery risks, partnership/collaboration risks, and employment practices.
