What It Means to be an Executive Director

A course designed to help nonprofit leaders balance the demands of their role

Being an executive director requires wearing many hats, particularly in smaller organizations. Executive directors often take the lead on fundraising, volunteer coordination, and even bookkeeping — all while trying to carry the organization’s mission forward.

In this session, you will:

  • Better understand what leadership is and isn’t.
  • Identify key ways to delegate with care.
  • Learn tips for working with teams for a more strategic focus.
