CNLA: Equipping Nonprofit Leaders

Christian Leadership Alliance

Christian Nonprofit Leadership Academy 2015

Christian Leadership Alliance presents the Christian Nonprofit Leadership Academy (CNLA) as one of the many leadership training experiences offered at The Outcomes Conference: CLA Dallas 2015.

CNLA is an extensive academic experience for equipping nonprofit leaders. This year,  CLA offers 8 class options that last 12.5-hours each over a 2-day period. Wise experts and active practitioners are serving as faculty. Participants receive comprehensive training. All classes are designed to increase personal effectiveness, address the realities of leading a Christian nonprofit, and allow time to discuss key issues.

The Academy will be in session the following times:

  • Wednesday, April 15:         8:00 – 10:30 AM and 1:30 – 5:30 PM
  • Thursday, April 16:             8:00 – 10:30 AM and 2:00 – 5:30 PM

Based on feedback from 2014, all Academy classes will break for The Outcomes Conference general sessions held on Wednesday and Thursday mornings.

The Christian Nonprofit Leadership Academy is CLA’s “graduate level” of training. This is where you will find the most in-depth academic experience CLA provides its members. If this is for you, then you must select the Academic Experience when registering for The Outcomes Conference. At that time, you will be asked to pre-select the Academy class you want to attend.
