CDW accepting applications for Cenla Boardbuilders

Community Development Works is accepting applications for Cenla Boardbuilders, a program for emerging leaders to become active in their communities as members of nonprofit boards. The deadline to apply for the program is Friday, July 12.

The program is open to professionals identified by their employer as an emerging leader with a desire to become involved in the community; interested individuals who may be retired, self-employed, or looking for higher-level volunteer opportunities; or nonprofit board members who are in need of an orientation to their new role on a board. Employers are encouraged to sponsor their emerging professionals for participation in the program, allowing for a meaningful professional development opportunity for the employee and community development opportunity for the organization.

The program runs August-October, with a graduation ceremony in November, and consists of a series of sessions in the roles and responsibilities of being an effective board member. Participants may pursue two learning tracks for the program: Track I is for newly seated board members with limited service experience (1-2 years) who are only seeking training; Track II is for individuals with no previous board service who are seeking training and assistance with identifying a nonprofit match.

As Cenla Boardbuilders celebrates its 10 year anniversary in 2013, 138 participants have already graduated from the program.

To participate in the 2013 program either as a participant, nonprofit partner or employer partner, call CDW at 318-443-7880 or toll-free at 1-800-803-8075. For more details about Cenla Boardbuilders, visit the CDW website. Community Development Works is funded by The Rapides Foundation.
