Introducing the Susan M. Ross New Executive Director Institute

Aug 14, 2020

The Center for Nonprofit Excellence, in collaboration with the Support Center, is pleased to announce the Susan M. Ross New Executive Director Institute. Participants will engage in an innovative, peer learning-based curriculum designed to illuminate resources and success strategies for nonprofit Executive Directors. The application period has closed.

This highly interactive, two-day “bootcamp” consists of content informed by research, and is designed to help participants advance their skills in:

– Executive leadership and management
– Fundraising and development
– Strategy and partnerships
– Risk management
– Board governance and relations
– Financial management
– Organizational growth and development

We are seeking a diverse group of first-time Executive Directors who wish to enhance their leadership and management acumen and join a cohort of talented individuals at a similar point in their careers. Eligibility for “first-time Executive Directors” is flexible; our focus is less on a specific length of tenure, and more on the developmental stage of leadership.

Participants will benefit by bolstering their strategic leadership skills and improving their ability to meet organizational goals. The facilitators will cover a comprehensive curriculum, and help participants navigate the wide range of technical assistance options available to nonprofits.  And through an online platform, cohort participants will have the chance to stay connected once the program is completed. Apply today!
