2023 CNM Membership
Our Middle Tennessee community needs nonprofits, now more than ever. CNM membership gives your nonprofit exclusive access to resources, training, community partnerships, and so much more. By joining CNM, you’ll be equipped with the tools you need to make a difference.
CNM members stay more connected, more engaged, and more prepared to solve the problems of the future. Current members are invited to join our Networking Lounge Facebook Group. This is the place to inquire and source support from peers, share resources and provide resources to all nonprofit staff, volunteers, and board members in our region.
If you are currently affiliated with an established nonprofit organization, you qualify for an organizational membership with CNM. With an organizational membership, your entire staff, board, and volunteers can all take advantage of CNM Benefits including discounted workshops, networking events, complimentary postings on our Job Board and Board Builder, and more.

“As a growing organization, CNM plays an instrumental role in providing critical tools and education opportunities for Turnip Green Creative Reuse that have contributed to a tremendous increase in both the quality and quantity of our community impact. Additionally, with the challenges of running a non-profit through a global pandemic, we are full of gratitude for CNM providing meaningful continued support to keep Nashville’s non-profit ecosystem strong.”

“Leadership can be a very lonely place. And when you’re not able to be vulnerable without a certain level of repercussions, it can be very challenging. And so to listen to other experiences that sounded like mine allowed me a level of awareness that I was right where I needed to be, when I needed to be, and doing what I was supposed to do. I want to just emphasize that it was just an amazing experience for me. It not only provided me safety and simplicity, it provided me with a support system that I didn’t even know that I needed.”
– KARA JAMES, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The F.I.N.D. Design
