Dear Nonprofit Supporter,
Welcome to Cedar Valley Connections, a newsletter to connect the leaders of the nonprofit sector. 

Annual Nonprofit Explor-A-Ganza Event -- Please Register Today!



The CVNA and the UNI Nonprofit Leadership Alliance students are partnering for an opportunity to participate in a career mixer. 


WHEN:  Monday, March 3rd, 2014 from 3:45pm-5:00pm


WHERE:  Gallagher Bluedorn 


Explore-A-Ganza is an excellent opportunity for non-profit organizations to become familiar with UNI students while providing students a forum to discuss internships, jobs, career & volunteer opportunities with your organization.    


Organization profiles will be shared with students ahead of time.  The format of the event will consist of "speed interviewing" with 5-6 rounds/rotations.   We hope you will join us!
