Join nonprofit economics scholars Dennis Young and Bruce Seaman, their research colleagues, and local nonprofit leaders as they explore themes from the forthcoming second edition of the Handbook of Research on Nonprofit Economics and Management, which features the works of nearly 50 international nonprofit scholars. Nonprofit organizations are a growing, dynamic and critical part of modern market economies in democratic countries. The Handbook explores the frontiers of knowledge at the intersection of economics and the management of these organizations, including the role, structure and behavior of private, nonprofit organizations as economic units and their participation in markets and systems of public service delivery, strategies for efficient management, implications of public policies affecting nonprofits, and cutting edge questions for future research. Panelists will discuss income and asset management, market participation, and the public policy environment of the contemporary nonprofit sector.
The conference is hosted by the Levin College in partnership with Business Volunteers Unlimited, the National Center on Nonprofit Enterprise, and Edward Elgar Publishing, and supported with the generosity of local sponsors.
