Leaders’ Circle

Designed for Executive Directors and CEO’s of nonprofits. This six-month series includes confidential, monthly meetings based on peer group learning experiences and will include continuing education opportunities and trainings based on what the participants identify as a need. In addition to the monthly meetings, each participant receives three coaching sessions with an Executive Coach to continue to develop their personal leadership style and set strategies for their organization.

  • "...since Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits has so many experiences and so much knowledge and resources and networking throughout the state, they are able to provide unprecedented help. If there was one word to describe my experience with the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits, it would be priceless."

    Mary Lane Porter
    Mary Lane Porter Cities in Schools, Ardmore
  • "That's something the Center absolutely provides -- priceless help."

  • "[OKCNP's Shared Financial Services] has been a tremendous service that I honestly don’t know how we could have afforded it if it wasn’t for the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits."

    Joe Dorman
    Joe Dorman Oklahoma Institute for Child Advocacy, OKC
  • "I had never been to a Center training before. So when I registered for the Public Speaking training, my colleagues said, 'You already do so much public speaking. What are you going to get out of it?" I was really impressed because we went through really thinking about building your presentation, and the packet sent home with us was really helpful. The workshop itself was just so full of information!"

    Laura Ketchum
    Laura Ketchum Allied Arts, OKC
  • “Through the Shared Financial Services we are able to have services of a CPA to help us manage our federal grants because we do not have enough money in our budget for a full time accountant, so partnering with OKCNP allows us to have the best of both worlds -- to have an accountant to meet our needs, and also to free my time up to do more things."

    Melinda Points
    Melinda Points Oklahoma AmeriCorps, Oklahoma
  • "One of the best things about the training is it breaks everything down into fundamentals. So, if you are a brand new person, just now starting, it gives you the basics for that. If you are experienced and have been working in the area before, you are growing your skills."

    Amy Walton
    Amy Walton Gateway to Prevention & Recovery
  • "I've taken several trainings at OKCNP since becoming a member -- Annual Fund Campaign, Funders Forum, Standards for Excellence, and The Partnership -- we've really taken advantage of our membership, because we want to professionalize our foundation so it has a forward-facing transparency for our donors."

    Jennifer Seal
    Jennifer Seal Putnam City Schools Foundation
  • "The training was very informative, very well-rounded. I liked that they added in workshops. So, not only were they telling you what could be the best for you to do, but they helped you to figure out how to tailor it for your organization."

    Brandi Davis
    Brandi Davis Oklahoma Humanities Council
  • I liked the networking in the Tulsa class for Nonprofit Management Certification Program with people I would not normally have the opportunity to mingle. So, the flexibility to float between the 2 cohorts in OKC and Tulsa is great!

    Robyn Hilger
    Robyn Hilger El Sistema Oklahoma
  • You don’t know what you don’t know, and I wanted to learn in the right environment with the Nonprofit Management Certification Program. I didn't want to have that oh gosh we've got a problem environment.
