Effective nonprofits, and indeed the effectiveness of the entire nonprofit sector, depends on capable and committed leaders. NAO believes that the development of high performing, confident leaders, who inspire action, are responsive, skilled, and forward looking is essential to the success of any nonprofit mission.
The Nonprofit Leaders Network (NLN) provides regular professional development opportunities, tangible tools and strategies, and a chance to connect with peers in a collaborative learning environment.
Although this series is designed for executive directors and board members, it is open to anyone who wants to learn more about effective nonprofit leadership.
All sessions take place at Ecotrust Conference Center in downtown Portland from 8 to 10 a.m. Topics will focus on key elements that support effective organizations. Advanced registration is required for all events. Click on an event below to register.
