share their experience with Circle attendees, October 2018

Piloted in 2015, the Executive Director Learning Circle provides a space for community learning and peer dialogue. Serving as a nonprofit executive director is a great privilege and a particular challenge. You wear many hats, from holding your organization's vision, to minding the daily details, fostering partnership, and generating financial support. Join this series to connect with fellow directors for learning and networking. Session topics have included board diversity, federal tax changes, organizational growth, telling your story and personal resiliency. There is no charge to attend. Please see 2020 details and registration below.

Please note that this series is designed for, and exclusively available to, current nonprofit executive directors. Thank you.
