Promoting Excellence in Nonprofit Leadership in the Greater Pottstown Area

Announcing New Programs in Pottstown for Board Members, Executive Directors, Emerging Leaders & Other Staff

With an impressive history of professional development collaborations in support of nonprofit organizations in the Greater Pottstown area, The Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation and The Nonprofit Center, with support from United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, offer beneficial new capacity-building opportunities for board members, executive directors and staff.

Peer Learning Circles

Emerging Nonprofit Leaders and Board Members can each be a part of their own personal think tank, meeting monthly for eight months with a small group of peers for joint problem-solving – beginning in December.

For Board Presidents
Recognizing that there are issues, concerns and challenges unique to the role of Board President, a group of 7 to 8 Board Presidents will be assembled to meet monthly for eight months, for facilitated peer-to-peer problem-solving discussions.  After an initial three-hour introductory, bonding in-person session, subsequent 90-minute meetings will be virtual.  Attendance at all meetings is mandatory for this program to be successful. Sessions will be 9 am to noon at the Foundation offices on 12/16/16, and 8 to 9:30 am on 1/20/17, 2/17/17, 3/17/17, 4/21/17, 5/19/17, 6/16/17 and 7/21/17 virtual sessions

For Emerging Leaders
Preparing the next generation of nonprofit leaders must be a priority for our sector.  We will provide a venue for this leadership development through a  facilitated Peer Learning Circle for 7 to 8 emerging leaders.  These will be senior managers who report to the executive director and manage at least one person.  They will work together, in professionally facilitated sessions, to explore issues common to individuals at that level. The 2 hour face-to-face sessions will run for eight months:
9 to 11 am on 12/7/16, 1/4/17, 2/1/17, 3/1/17, 4/5/17, 5/3/17, 6/7/17 and 7/12/17, at the Foundation offices.
