“I was so impressed with Peggy that I recruited her to be the chair for the organizing committee for starting the Montana Nonprofit Association — on the condition that she also agree to serve as chair of MNA's Steering Committee — and then chair of MNA's founding Board of Directors. And she did a fabulous job in those roles. She's had many subsequent successes and has received her CFRE certification to underscore her fundraising credentials.”
Mike Schectman, Executive Director, Big Sky Institute
