Registration for our trainings opens 6-8 weeks in advance of the training. In addition to our upcoming events (see below), we host two ongoing training groups that meet regularly throughout the year: New Directors University (NDU) & WE LEAD.
New Directors University
In this year-long workshop, new directors from around the state gather to discuss important aspects of leadership and service provision to victims of domestic violence. Areas covered include working with the board of directors, grant writing, budgeting and finance management, and community and organizational leadership. This group is open to new directors with 3 years and less experience, and promotes networking and connections. The application process is now closed for the current session, which begins on January 9.
