KMA Human Resources Consulting and the Maine Association of Nonprofits (MANP) have developed a partnership to offer human resource tools and services to Maine nonprofits as part of MANP’s member benefits.

KMA is offering training, free access to articles and information in the online MANP Answer Center, and pro-bono HR consulting for MANP members.

Pro-bono consulting will be coordinated through MANP and includes telephone discussions around specific employee relation issues and compliance questions, wage and hour eligibility and determination, eligibility for mandated state and federal leaves of absence, performance management around corrective action/discipline, and termination of employment questions.

Training will focus on executive leadership, conflict management, team building, compliance, and disciplinary actions.

“We’re really excited to be part of MANP’s team and to be able to provide its members with access to much-needed training and consulting expertise,” explains KMA’s president and founder, Kim Anania. “Navigating the HR-related waters can be difficult, especially with changes in laws and regulations. At KMA, we are happy to share our expertise and are always looking for opportunities to pay it forward. Working with nonprofits through MANP seemed like a perfect match.”

“Nonprofits play such a critical role in supporting the things we value most in Maine, and MANP works to provide our members with the highest quality professional resources to allow them to meet their missions in a sustainable fashion. We’re deeply appreciative of the generosity of businesses like KMA, who clearly value the work of the sector, and are willing to contribute their expertise to support its wellbeing” said Scott Schnapp, Executive Director of MANP.

Founded in 1994, MANP’s mission is to strengthen the leadership, voice, and organizational effectiveness of Maine nonprofits so they can better enrich the quality of community and personal life in the state. MANP has over 800 nonprofit members and 140 Maine business supporters, and is a member of the National Council of Nonprofits, a national network of state associations across the country.
