Institute for Executive Director Leadership

Outstanding nonprofit leadership yields exceptional results

The Institute for Executive Director Leadership is a place for professionals in nonprofit and social sector leadership to gain knowledge, resources and support.

  • Leadership development tools based on researched theory and practice
  • Sharper nonprofit management skills in areas ranging from organizational governance to financial planning
  • A network of long-lasting connections with others invested in nonprofit leadership
