Palo Alto ED Roundtable - New Series Second Thursday of the month





CEN's series exclusive to EDs and CEOs! A unique monthly forum in which nonprofit chief executives come together for lunch and to share experiences, challenges, solutions, and best practices. The monthly format includes:


  • Dynamic, relevant new content connecting your needs to current and emerging trends;

  • Intensive, confidential small group experiences;

  • Customized discussion that addresses current, tangible issues--board relations, personal and organizational sustainability, fundraising, staffing your development team, and much more;

  • Monthly thought pieces for group discussion

  • Exclusive membership in on line discussion groups

  • Skilled CEN facilitators who blend participant needs and expertise for rich and valuable interaction.

Each professionally facilitated series consists of six monthly sessions of directed peer support and learning, which take place on a regularly-scheduled day of the month.  The program includes catered lunch. To maintain an intimate and productive environment, space in each group is limited.
