Learning Community is the key to success.

Learn from our experts. Learn from each other.

We established the Raffa Learning Community as one more contribution to the nonprofit field. We offer complimentary and fee-based training seminars in accounting, technology, human resources and more. The series of classes are specifically designed to keep you on top of the industry's leading trends, government regulations and new technologies. We offer year-round classes, roundtables, panels and forums on comprehensive and diverse topics presented by both internal and external subject matter experts. Additionally, we offer CPE credit for both Group Live and Group Internet seminars.

We hope you will join us for breakfast or lunch and take advantage of our great educational offerings!

Access to Raffa Learning Community seminars is available through Live Meeting as a courtesy to Raffa clients and/or out-of-state attendees. To attend a seminar via Live Meeting, simply register online and we will send you all of the details needed to participate remotely in our sessions.
