Strengthening the Nonprofit Sector and Nonprofits by Empowering Leaders
The Roundtable is committed to enhancing the capabilities of future and seasoned leaders to address the unique challenges of our region. We believe that strong leaders with the right skills and support, who share a strong common bond, will better communicate the value of the sector, lead coalitions, and serve as boundary-crossers with leaders in other sectors. Our programs offer nonprofit leaders the opportunity to share their collective expertise and experience as they work to build a better region.
