The Bender Method

The Alliance for Better Nonprofits strives to find trainers and consultants who are passionate about nonprofits, and Jack Bender is a prime example of someone who truly cares about his work. His experience with the YMCA in various cities and on local and national association levels gave him the insight to develop what’s been coined as “The Bender Method” to board evaluation.
