Access to ongoing training for nonprofit leaders is essential for their success. Nonprofit leaders, especially executive directors, have to serve many roles from finance, governance, and human resources to marketing & PR, fundraising, program development and more. There are very few who come to these nonprofit leadership positions with all the knowledge and experience necessary to handle each of these diverse roles with ease. Ongoing training is critical to keep up with best practices in the nonprofit sector and provide a platform for learning new skills and improving others.
