What is Leadership Academy?

This FREE bi-annual training conference is open to anyone who works with a nonprofit, from Executive Directors to volunteers.  When you attend Leadership Academy, you’ll network with likeminded Difference Makers and discover ways you can work together to achieve your mission. You’ll also learn how to boost your organization’s community outreach and increase the efficiency of your operations to reach your goals more effectively. At Dudley DeBosier, we feel strongly about giving back to our community. As your organization and it’s leaders are at the forefront of that mission, we consider our relationship with you to be extremely important!

How did Leadership Academy start?

Although we've been coaching nonprofits since 2015, we held our first Leadership Academy with 10 nonprofit organizations in 2018. Our vision was to offer free advice and training for nonprofit leaders, employees, board members and volunteers. Since then, Dudley DeBosier’s Leadership Academy has grown tremendously, bringing together hundreds of organizations and community members year after year to serve one collective purpose: making our community a better place.
