To register, find the session you are interested in attending on our Training Calendar, open the event, and click "Register." Our new registration system utilizes your email address and will not require anything other than your email address if you are in our system. If, however, the registration asks for your name, username and password, this means there is not a matching email in the system. Please create your account and continue the registration process. All future registrations will require only your email address. Please contact us with any questions or issues.    

Fees & Payment 

At CNP, it is our goal to provide quality, affordable training and professional development to the nonprofit community.  CNP members receive discounts on fees for training sessions, and membership is available to nonprofit organizations, individuals, students, and affiliate business members.  

Payment is due at the time of registration, unless otherwise arranged.  CNP processes online payments through PayPal and all major credit cards. If you choose the option to "I Will Pay Later," you will be sent an invoice and payment is required no later than the day of class. If you have any questions, contact Cathy Mendez.  

Cancellations and Refunds

Cancellations must be made at least one working day (24 hours) prior to the event in order to avoid being charged.  You will be refunded for your payment or provided with full credit toward another training session.  No refunds or credits will be given for late cancellations or no-shows.

CNP reserves the right to cancel any workshop at any time. Should we cancel, participants may choose to receive either a full refund or a credit toward another training session.  If there is inclement weather, check the front page of our website to see if classes are cancelled.
