HIGHLIGHTS ...
Executive Roundtable
The Nonprofit Executive Director Roundtable offered in partnership with Maryland Nonprofits and Nonprofit Prince George's County is a supportive space for leaders to share their challenges in a confidential setting. Being a nonprofit executive director or CEO can be one of the most rewarding, yet stressful jobs. Providing leadership for the board and for the staff can leave the executive director without peers within an organization, which can be isolating. This training is free for members of Nonprofit Prince George's County or Maryland Nonprofits. Join us on Thursday, Dec. 5, from 9 - 11 a.m. at our offices. Register now.
