MURRAY, Ky. – Murray State University has created the Paducah Academy for Nonprofit Development and Leadership (PANDL), a leadership training for area nonprofit professionals. The program was developed by Murray State’s nonprofit leadership faculty, local nonprofit leaders and professional leadership consultants.  

A total of 22 area nonprofit professionals were selected to participate in the academy beginning on Aug. 9. The professionals play a vital role in surrounding communities and will be engaged in monthly training through April 2023 on program development, financial management, support resources, communications, marketing and more. 

"One of the primary goals of the nonprofit sector, as a whole, is to improve the quality of life in communities,” said Director of the Murray State nonprofit development and leadership program, Dr. Elise Kieffer. “Through participation in PANDL, practitioners will gain new skills and refine existing knowledge to facilitate the success of their organizations. PANDL introduces and reinforces resource development, strategy, marketing, networking, leadership, management and other skills that aid organizational success. Successful nonprofit organizations lead to stronger communities. The PANDL program strives to make that possible."
