The Nonprofit Network Executive Director Academy functions as a cohort of participants, with multiple presenters addressing key skills over the course of 7 monthly sessions. To maximize the value of this cohort model, the sessions will be highly interactive not only on the topic to be covered during that session, but also in discussing the successes and challenges of implementing the topics covered in previous sessions. Participants are encouraged to deliberately focus on skill implementation of previous sessions and to share their barriers and breakthroughs with their fellow participants when the cohort. As described in the Academy Expectations, Consistent attendance will be necessary to appropriately support your colleagues and to gain proficiency with the skills that build on each other.
The Nonprofit Network Executive Director Academy is a cohort of no more than 10 executive directors who have been in their position for fewer than 5 years. This deliberate and consistent gathering of people who have similar tenure in their positions as ED's aims to accomplish the following:
