Congratulations to the Excellence for Nonprofit Leadership, Class of 2018!

On the 7th of March, the Fort Bend Chamber held its 15th Excellence for Nonprofit Leadership (ENL) graduation ceremony at University of Houston at Sugar Land.

 The concept for the ENL program grew out of what was perceived as a significant opportunity to develop and sustain nonprofit board and staff leadership in Fort Bend County for the effective use of community resources. ENL is an eight-month program, September through April, with approximately 60 participants. Sessions begin with an opening retreat in Galveston followed by seven, one-day sessions covering Board Governance, Organizational Audit, Strategic Planning, Assembling the Workforce, Fundraising and Financials. The Excellence for Nonprofit Leadership program is completed with a Capstone and Graduation ceremony.

Excellence for Nonprofit Leadership 2018-2019 applications will be available on March 26, 2018. For more information on the program contact Juliette Nessmith at Juliette@fortbendcc.org or 281-566-2161.
