Executive Director Roundtable - Register now!
Maryland Nonprofits and Nonprofit Prince George's County are teaming up to offer nonprofit Executive Directors (EDs) and CEOs a chance to renew and refresh, and make new connections this summer. Being a nonprofit ED can be one of the most rewarding and also one of the most stressful jobs! Providing leadership for the board and for the staff often leaves the ED/CEO without peers in the organization and can be isolating. The Executive Director Roundtable is an opportunity for leaders to share their true challenges (board, staff, funding, strategy, time management) in a confidential, supportive setting with peers, and also find ways to collaborate and innovate. Free for members of either Maryland Nonprofits or Nonprofit Prince George's County to attend.

Date: Tuesday, June 18 and Wednesday, July 17
Time: 9:00 a.m. - 10:30 p.m. EST
Location: Nonprofit Prince George's County, Bowie
Facilitator: Carmen Marshall, Maryland Nonprofits, Director of Consulting
