2019 Executive Director Leader Circle

10 Sessions throughout 2019 
8:30 AM -  9:30 AM

In 2006, the Nonprofit Service Center launched the Executive Director Leader Circle to benefit nonprofit professionals in the panhandle. Nonprofit executive directors work in environments that are often isolated. They need a support group that can provide honest assessments and ideas regarding challenges, opportunities, and frustrations. The Executive Director Leader Circle provides a confidential environment where nonprofit leaders can learn and interact with their peers. Each meeting offers a roundtable discussion or a featured speaker on topics vital to nonprofit leaders, as well as time for networking.
