All national requirements of the Fraternity are reported through the Chapter Officer Portal, an online chapter reporting platform designed to allow chapter officers the ability to provide real-time, ongoing maintenance of the chapter membership, officer rosters and other national reporting requirements. The Officer Portal is available to all officers on record with Alpha Phi Omega.
In fall 2019, Alpha Phi Omega and the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance joined in a partnership that offers students leadership and professional development training in social sector volunteer and career fields. Existing and future APO members now have access to the Alliance’s exclusive Certified Nonprofit Professional (CNP) credential. The CNP is a unique leadership training program that prepares students for successful nonprofit careers through education, coaching, service and connections to the nonprofit workforce.
This partnership will bring APO students access to additional leadership and professional development training, coaching and career preparation that will set them on a path to success as either a nonprofit professional or volunteer.
The CNP program will develop members’ professional skills, harness and build their passion for Leadership, Friendship and Service, and connect them with organizations that want to hire students just like APO members!
The Alliance has been developing nonprofit leaders for more than 70 years through its Certified Nonprofit Professional program. Independent research shows that CNPs are seven times more likely to reach a leadership position as compared with non-CNPs who have similar career paths and educational experiences.
The Alliance was started more than 70 years ago by former Kansas City Mayor and APO Past National President H. Roe Bartle and a group of other visionaries who believed that the greatest determinant of nonprofit success was the quality of its workforce. Its CNP program operates on nearly 40 campuses across the country. Past President Bartle was instrumental in the expansion of APO during its early years, implementing strategies that supported chapter growth and organizational sustainability. The CNP program is a great way to take your APO chapter experience and tangibly show potential employers, regardless of industry, that your skillset as a future employee is far greater than your peers.
Those who complete the program will join the network of more than 11,000 CNPs around the world.
