Leading in any organization is daunting, but especially so in nonprofits. Nonprofit leaders are required to be knowledgeable in all aspects of their work and corporate details of the organization they serve. This series helps nonprofit leaders hone their skills across a full range of organizational opportunities and challenges.

NAO’s Nonprofit Leaders Network (NLN) offers regular opportunities to learn about nonprofit governance, effective supervision, and nonprofit corporate management. The series also supports your leadership through peer-to-peer discussions and group work. Join us for this season’s NLN programming to expand your knowledge and skills as a nonprofit leader! This series is designed for executive directors and board members. This network is also open to anyone who wants to learn more about effective nonprofit leadership.
