CDW Accepting Applications for 2018 Cenla Execbuilders

Leadership development for nonprofit executives

Community Development Works, a program of The Rapides Foundation, is seeking participants for Cenla Execbuilders, a leadership development program for Executive Directors of nonprofit organizations in Central Louisiana. The deadline to apply for the 2018 program is Friday, February 23. 

Cenla Execbuilders is designed to identify and develop knowledgeable, skilled, committed, and action-oriented leaders in the nonprofit sector who will have maximum impact on the communities and constituents they serve in an environment of change and competing priorities.  

The program is free and open to new or experienced Executive Directors who want to become more effective in their role as leaders of local nonprofit organizations. Participants may choose from two learning tracks: Track I for Executive Directors who are seeking training; and Track II for Executive Directors who are seeking training supplemented with professional coaching support. Cenla Execbuilders uses a combination of intensive training, professional coaching and peer networking opportunities grounded in adult learning methodologies. 

Both tracks attend an orientation session in March, intensive training from April to June, and peer networking sessions in September and December. Track II participants also receive professional coaching designed to support implementation of the leadership skills from July-September. A graduation ceremony for all Cenla Execbuilders participants is held in October. 

Since it began in 2012, Cenla Execbuilders has attracted 44 nonprofit executives. Cenla Execbuilders alumni benefit from the peer-networking component that allows them to link up with other nonprofit community leaders in the area to share ideas and challenges. 

To participate in the 2018 program of Cenla Execbuilders, call CDW at 318-443-7880 or toll free at 1-800-803-8075. For full details about Cenla Execbuilders and to complete the online application, visit the CDW website at
