Board/CEO Executive Leadership DevelopmentDeveloping executive leadership and board effectiveness to take your nonprofit to the next level.

Nonprofit leaders occupy unique positions in a unique field. Laden with constantly changing—and challenging—demands, executive directors and CEOs require a distinct set of skills and strong networks of support.

The Executive Leadership Program for Nonprofit Organizations (ELPNO) [link to ELPNO program page] connects nonprofit executives with powerful skill building opportunities led by nationally recognized faculty. Participants are transformed through the immersive environment that creates a community of learning with a deep focus on personal leadership development.
