My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy, Washington, DC, USA
I'm the President of the University of Miami School of Law Chapter of the American Constitution Society, and I have been incredibly impressed with the national management of the organization from the start. Without their support, our local chapter would not have been able to achieve some of the success that we had this year.
At the University of Miami, this fall, some of our highlighted events included a professor panel on Don't Ask Don't Tell considerations, and we hosted a Voter Rights Panel with ACLU Voting Rights Director Laughlin McDonald.
I've been part of several organizations in the past, but I can tell you that the national chapter has been incredibly fast and efficient in their support of our local chapter. They maintain a great balance of encouraging our creativity, while making sure that no money goes to waste.
I would honestly encourage other nonprofits and associations to model their structure off of ACS because it works incredibly well. It's one of the best non-profits that I've ever worked with.
This organization is an incredibly worthwhile donation.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
coordination between the national chapter and our local organization. As I noted in the review, the national chapter is great in encouraging creativity, while still maintaining standards and a legitimate organization.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I can't think of any changes to make off the bat, quite frankly. I'm part of several organizations, and quite frankly, I've never seen a national non-profit run so effectively.
