ELPNO was a wonderful opportunity to meet with like-minded nonprofit business people and to be exposed to the wide variety of issues facing the nonprofit community. The program provided me with insights that I would not have otherwise had.

My horizons were broadened by the ELPNO experience. It helped me see that I am not just a leader within my own division or department but for the agency enterprise-wide.

The ELPNO program provided me with access to national and regional experts … The content could not have been more thoughtfully structured. The nonprofit community, perhaps more than any other community, is starved for capable, thoughtful, and strategic leaders. The ELPNO program offers our nonprofit community a real chance to ensure we are developing a base of leaders who will ensure our sector is not malnourished.
