LANO Institute for Nonprofit Excellence

Part of LANO's fundamental mission is to assist our members by providing high quality information, tools, and resources to maximize the impact of Louisiana nonprofits.  One of the greatest ways to achieve this goal is to regularly host training events called the LANO Institute for Nonprofit Excellence.


Coordinated and facilitated by Dr. Cory Sparks, LANO Institute events feature a variety of topics and are held throughout Louisiana to ensure participation and best practice education for all of our members.

Cancellation or No Show Policy

We understand that there are times when you must miss a LANO training due to an obligation or emergency. However, when you do not cancel your reservation more than 24 hours before the beginning of a training, you may be preventing another person from attending.

Whenever a situation arises which prevents you from attending a training, you must inform one of the training’s organizers more than 24 hours before the start of the training in order to receive a refund.

Any cancellation that is made within the 24 hours preceding the start of the training will be eligible for a transfer of the registration fee- the amount can be applied to another LANO training of your choosing.

We hope you understand that our staff and guest lecturers’ time is important and that our trainings are valuable, for this reason we cannot issue refunds or registration fee transfers for no shows.




The LANO Institute for Nonprofit Excellence wants to thank the Carolyn W. and Charles T. Beaird Family Foundation for their support.
