Barrett Baebler, D.

How does one acquire these skills? By actively participating in nonprofit professional organizations like CSPRC and by continuing their professional education,” said Dr. Baebler.
Dr. Baebler has been active in CSPRC for years. “CSPRC provides nonprofit professionals an opportunity to network and learn through great programmming and events. CSPRC members are also eligible for tuition discounts at Webster University.”
According to Dr. Baebler, nonprofits need professionals who can ensure the financial viability of the organization, address human resource management and operations, and deliver their mission. “Nonprofit leaders have to have the skills to balance the business-side with the mission-side of their organization,” he said, “At Webster University, we have expert faculty who teach these skills.”
