Pracademics Section
Share |

At the 2006 ARNOVA Annual Conference, the ARNOVA Board of Directors approved a request to form a new section, Pracademics, the fifth such sub-group within the association. As stated in the Policy and Procedures manual, sections allow ARNOVA members to express their special interests but also serve to further the mission of the association by enhancing its intellectual scope and helping to develop diverse leadership.

According to the bylaws of the section, its purpose is "to build more effective academic-practitioner relationships in order to foster and disseminate high quality research and strengthen nonprofit management education, community service, voluntary action, and philanthropic studies." Since 2006, the Pracademics Section has hosted two research sessions each conference. In 2014, the Pracademics section finalized their strategic plan to coincide with ARNOVA's mission. If you are interested in learning more about Pracademics, please contact any leadership team member below.


Thanks for joining us in Chicago for the 2015 conference, where we hosted two sessions and a networking dinner.  We are busy planning a slate of activities for 2016 in Washington, DC!  In addition, Pracademics has its own LinkedIn discussion group, which you can join here. Please watch for more additions to the Pracademics page on the ARNOVA website. For additional information on the Pracademics section, please contact Cathy Vrentas at
