Message from the Executive Director

Amy Little

July brings a new look for the Idaho Nonprofit Center. Check out our new website and watch for new and exciting content, plus additional member benefits to be announced.

This month, CenterView is full of great information, including an article from business affiliate Karen Baerlocher of Peak View Solutions. If you are unsure about the new FLSA overtime regulations or if they apply to you, her article will help you answer that question and provide some great ideas on steps you can take TODAY to ensure you are compliant before the December 1, 2016 deadline.

We heard you loud and clear from our membership needs assessment that accessing your membership benefits has not always been easy. Not only can you find the member login portal in an easy place on our home page, but your membership benefits are easy to see when you log in.
