FLORENCE, S.C. – University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill law professor Thomas Kelley will conduct the ninth session of the Non-Profit Leadership Institute at Francis Marion University, Friday, March 24.
The institute is a seven-month training program for leaders of non-profits. Twenty-eight participants from across the state are members of this year’s class.
Funded initially with multi-year grants from the Drs. Bruce and Lee Foundation, the institute now receives major support from FMU, along with a grant from the PSARAS Foundation.
Kelley directs a Community Development Law Clinic at UNC, in which upper-level students provide business counsel to North Carolina non-profit organizations. Prior to going to Chapel Hill in 1999, Kelley was director of community programs for the Duke University Center for Documentary Studies.
Kelley earned the B.A. degree in government from Harvard University and the J.D. degree from Northeastern University.
The luncheon speaker will be state Sen. Kent Williams, who represents District 30, which includes portions of Florence, Dillon, Marion and Marlboro counties.
Fred Sheheen, former commissioner and executive director of the S.C. Commission on Higher Education, is director of the FMU Non-Profit Leadership Institute.
