ELI for CEOs

ELI for CEOs
ELI for CEOs is a year-long learning opportunity that focuses exclusively on community leadership for community foundation CEOs.

A core part of our Executive Leadership Institute program, ELI for CEO cohorts meets three times over a year for two-day small group meetings. These meetings include time for structured peer advising – always a big hit with our participants! 

ELI has pushed my thinking, and my practice, in ways I could have never done alone. Learning directly from peers in the field has been invaluable.
