CEO Confidential (5 Sessions) – Budgets Less than $2M

Join other senior nonprofit leaders for dialogue and insight as we support each other in leadership and change. Designed for Chief Executive Officers and Executive Directors at established nonprofit organizations with budgets below $2 million.

About this Affinity Group

Nonprofit CEOs and executive directors share experiences, ideas, and resources while learning from each other and working through real-time issues. Along the way, they build new connections and create potential partnerships within a small peer group of fellow leaders. Space is limited to allow colleagues the supportive space to address real-time challenges they are facing during the five-month period. Discussions are driven by participants in a safe and confidential space, with guided facilitation by CNM President/CEO, Regina Birdsell.

This series is focused on CEOs and EDs of nonprofit organizations with budgets of less than $2M. If your organization has a larger budget, join us for the series that meets on Wednesdays (starting July 27).
