CDW Accepting Applications for Cenla Boardbuilders
Deadline to apply is July 15
Community Development Works is accepting applications for Cenla Boardbuilders, a program aimed at developing emerging leaders through service on the Board of Directors of local nonprofit organizations. The deadline to apply for the program is Friday, July 15.
The program is open to: professionals identified by their employer as “up and coming” with a desire for greater community involvement; interested individuals who may be retired, self-employed, or looking for higher-level volunteer opportunities; or nonprofit board members needing an orientation to their new role on a board.
The program runs August-October, 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.
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.
CDW is also accepting applications for Nonprofit Partners who are looking to recruit new members for their Board of Directors.
Track II participants are matched with a nonprofit organization for board service.
To participate in the 2016 program either as a participant, nonprofit partner or employer partner, call CDW toll free at 1-800-803-8075. Visit our website to learn more or apply for Cenla Boardbuilders. Community Development Works is a program of The Rapides Foundation.
