  • participate in daily workshops led by some of today’s leading nonprofit thought leaders and practitioners, engage in problem-solving scenarios, visit a high-functioning and dynamic nonprofit, and receive individual coaching;
  • explore the patterns and trends occurring in the nonprofit sector as a whole while uncovering how these changes impact your organizational strategies;
  • build your personal leadership skills and abilities; and,
  • deepen your professional network by joining the impressive cadre of ELPNO alumni.

ELPNO is designed to have the greatest impact on nonprofit professionals who can influence intermediate and long-term decision-making around mission, strategy, substantial programming, and policy.

ELPNO is a partnership between the Fanning Institute, the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University and the Institute for Leadership and Entrepreneurship at Georgia Tech.
