Nonprofit Leadership Learning Community

March 24, 2017, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm

A program of the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development, the Nonprofit Leadership Learning Community (NLLC) is a small group learning environment for nonprofit leaders in the Athens area who want to practice vital leadership skills in a supportive, nurturing peer environment. The NLLC will bring together current and emerging leaders to participate in discussion, reflection, and action designed to examine and strengthen high-quality individual leadership skills while creating a strong, meaningful, empowered peer group.

This program is geared toward senior leadership of nonprofit organizations. The NLLC will emphasize content and practice that respects and maximizes the potential and talents of all, builds self-awareness, and allows the group to grow together as leaders. The goal of the NLLC is to ensure that participants that complete all of the sessions will leave with enhanced skills in will be in a position to lead their organizations, and the community, more effectively.


This transformational series consists of 5 sessions. Participants must commit to attending all sessions.

  • Opening Session Friday, March 24 (10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.)
