VIRTUAL EVENT: DER Mastermind: Executive Directors 2023
This six-month Mastermind group for executive directors will bring together nonprofit executives to support, coach, mentor, and inspire each other.
A mastermind is a small cohort of professionals who meet monthly to confidentially workshop each other’s business challenges, compare notes, and support each other. DER’s Executive Director Mastermind group brings you together with your peers to tackle the hard questions, celebrate your big and small wins, and everything in between.
To ensure a quality experience for all participants, facilitator Shaké Sulikyan will invite 8-10 members to join the group based on application (overall experience, interest, and diversity).
Meetings: 3rd Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday of the Month - time and date TBD by participant availability
Cost: $200 for DER members, $300 for nonmembers, Additional $100 refundable deposit to ensure attendance
Application Deadline: Friday, December 30, 2022
