The Non-Profit Leadership Expedition
Coming Spring 2020!
We are pleased to announce the launch of the North Carolina Community Action Association's Non-Profit Leadership Expedition! An immersive leadership experience at the beautiful Blockade Runner Beach Resort in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina.
Non-Profit leaders, join your peers for an immersive 2.5-day Leadership Expedition where your leadership skills will be enhanced through experiential learning. If you love classroom learning, slide presentations, and boring lectures, this event is not for you. We'll take advantage of the beautiful coastal environment surrounding Wrightsville Beach with sailing challenges, beach-side team building, and other outdoor learning activities to intensify learning and build actionable behaviors.
Check out the glance agenda from our inaugural cohort!
