Hello all!

I’ve been running federal economic development grants for the last five years and would like to move up with a better organization. I already have an MBA and some great prior private sector experience which has helped me get to the final round of interviews many times. I need the extra push though so I have been working on the PMP. A series of higher-priority events diverted my time/attention for two months and I am finding it hard to get back to the last few chapters. Is the PMP worthwhile in the non-profit world? I am worried I am putting energy in the wrong area. I have only met one other PMP here (in a god job for sure). Anyone also from non-profit? Advice would be much appreciated!!!!
