Roundtable for Experienced Nonprofit Leaders

Landing the top spot at a nonprofit can be lonely. Who can you talk to who understands the unique challenges of this role that you have taken on?

Sometimes the very best thing you can do is connect with others who understand the challenges you face and who may be tackling similar issues.

This nonprofit roundtable is a unique forum in which new nonprofit leaders can come together with a consistent group of peers to share experiences, challenges, solutions, and best practices. Topics will be selected by the group.

The roundtable will strive to:

  • Set a tone that is conducive to brainstorming, sharing ideas, solving problems, and networking.
  • Address topics related to the unique challenges and issues new nonprofit executives face every day.
  • Deepen connectons and build a community of support amongst participants.

If you want to build relationships with other nonprofit executives and are seeking more exposure to new ideas, this roundtable is a worthwhile investment.
