Young and new nonprofit executive directors posses unique insights while facing a number of challenges.

The Nonprofit Roundtable, Nonprofit NoVA and Nonprofit Montgomery invite you and your Board Chair to participate in a special Table for Ten for organizations that have recently experienced a leadership transition.
This opportunity grew out of a Table for Ten of Executive Directors who were new to their positions last year. They lobbied for a unique Table for Ten to support them and their Board Chairs during the 12 - 18 months of transition. That Table of Ten for new(ish) CEOs and their Board Chairs wrapped up in January and was so helpful to the participants that they urged us to offer it to the next cohort of new leaders, like you.What is a Table for 10? Generically, a Table for Ten is a three-part learning opportunity for nonprofit leaders of member organizations to join their peers for candid discussions, peer support and problem solving.
This particular Table for Ten is for teams of Executive Directors and Board Chairs of organizations that have recently experienced a leadership transition. The discussions will focus on best practices and common tension points, especially during cycles of change. The specific direction of the discussions will follow the interests and needs of the group. Topics that might come up include the Chair/CEO relationship, boundaries, helping long time staff with the transition, evaluating the new CEO, and co-creating an environment that facilitates change.
The three sessions will be facilitated by Ed Orzechowski who participated in and facilitated Tables for Ten, including the previous CEO/Board Chair Table for Ten. As described in his bio, Ed has more than 25 years of experience chairing and running significant community based nonprofits.
What is required of participants?
For continuity, you and your board chair must commit to attending all three sessions and to each completing a 15 minute phone interview to help inform the first two meetings. Participants observe “Vegas Rules” – absolute confidentiality. There is no additional cost as Tables for Ten are a benefit of membership.
If you and your Board Chair want to participate, please register above. Note that seats are filled on a first-come first-served basis and participation will be capped at 12 (six pairs). The first session will be on September 16th in NORTHERN VA from 8:00am-10:00am.
