Executive Leadership

Nonprofit University presents exceptional learning opportunities to develop sector leaders on all levels.

These powerful programs are developed with the input of nonprofit leaders and sector experts, in partnership with GCN’s corporate and foundation partners.  Our executive leadership programs provide a professional development experience for Georgia sector leaders on all levels – from emerging staff leaders to seasoned CEOs – helping them to move to higher levels of performance and impact for their organizations.

In addition to curricula filled with workshops, interactive training, and panel discussions, each of our flagship programs also offers webinars, peer support and knowledge-sharing, and networking opportunities for continued enrichment outside of the classroom.  Each program is offered annually through an application process, and class sizes are limited to provide a close-knit, small-group learning experience throughout the year.

GCN members are offered reduced fees to these programs, and members participating in our Access365 subscription program are eligible for further discounts.
