UWRI Seeks Applicants for Nonprofit Executive Director Learning Circle Series

Join us for this informative series.

Following the success of the Executive Director Learning Circle series earlier this year, United Way of Rhode Island will host another unique learning experience beginning in December. This series is for executive directors leading nonprofit organizations with annual budgets of less than $1 million. We are accepting applications through December 6, 2017, but those interested in attending are encouraged to apply as soon as possible; space is limited to only 20 participants.

Over 11 sessions, participants will gain practical experience, and join discussions covering:

  • Strategy Development and Implementation
  • Board Development and Engagement
  • Staffing and Alignment to Priorities
  • Comprehensive Fund Development
  • Risk Management/Emergency Preparedness

Additionally, through UWRI’s partnership with Roger Williams University’s School of Continuing Studies, participants will be offered their choice of a Certificate of Completion, or 6 credits toward a BA/MA in Community Development.

The sessions begin January 19, and continue to meet on the third Friday of each month, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., in UWRI’s Providence office, located at 50 Valley Street. The cost to attend this series is $200.
