Offering a relaxed, informal environment to learn and network, “Executive Director Academy," is a collaboration between United Way of Natrona County and Elevate Wyoming, designed to strengthen the nonprofit sector in Casper by facilitating professional development among Executive Directors (for FREE!). This program is designed to help non-profit directors be as effective as they possibly can at leading their organizations.
The Executive Director Academy isn’t like any other course or training program you’ve taken. This unique, “happy-hour style” program will be comprised of eight, four-hour sessions designed to flex with the group. Sessions will be a combination of planned content, peer-to-peer exercises, and open networking, encouraging casual discussion of the topics covered throughout our time together. The first four sessions will focus on the following pre-determined topics:
- Defining Your Role
- Staff and Board Management
- Building/Engaging your Network
- How to Tell Your Story: Testimonials vs. Data
The second half of the course will be led by YOU. In other words, the Executive Director Academy will go where you want to go, address the topics you find most relevant and explore challenges you want addressed. The flex sessions will allow you to collaborate with your peers and collectively grow in your role as Executive Director. All sessions are FREE and will include ample time to network and learn from each other.
