What is the Leadership Academy?

At Dudley DeBosier, we feel strongly about giving back to our community. As local nonprofit organizations and their leaders are at the forefront of that mission, we consider our relationships with nonprofits to be extremely important.

In August 2018, we held our first Leadership Academy with 10 nonprofit organizations. Our vision was to offer completely free advice and training for nonprofit leaders, employees, board members and volunteers. Since then, Dudley DeBosier’s Leadership Academy has grown tremendously. In our January 2020 event on leadership and operations, we were joined by 170 attendees representing over 80 organizations!

Leadership Academy is a bi-annual event. The first session of the year usually focuses on operations and the second session on marketing.
