We bring them together so that each member can benefit from our collective strength,” said NAM Director of Membership and Operations Kelly Koepsell.

“By connecting organizations with information, education, advocacy and collaboration, we help members focus their energy on the people and communities they serve.” NAM is a state association representing more than 650 nonprofit organizations throughout Nebraska and southwest Iowa.
