Northwest Arkansas Emerging Leaders (NWAEL) has developed a certification program for board service to assist emerging leaders in pursuing leadership and service positions and to create a reputable source for organizations to recruit emerging talent to serve in leadership capacities.

Program Focuses on Four Key Areas of Board Service

NWAEL will present its bi-annual Board Service Certification program for emerging leaders on Friday, September 18, 2020. Due to public safety and out of an abundance of caution, we will be hosting this class online via Zoom. The program will focus on four key areas of board service: commitments and expectations, legal and ethical considerations, finance, and fundraising. We will kick-off on September 18 and the following areas will be covered on subsequent Fridays.


Session 1: September 18 - Overarching Principles and Core Responsibilities of Board Service
Session 2: September 25 - Legal and Ethical Considerations of Board Service
Session 3: October 2 - Financial Considerations of Board Service
Session 4: October 9 - Your Role in Fundraising

The NWAEL Board Service Certification program was formed with a vision of creating a leadership pool in order to link ready, willing and able emerging talent to organizations, public and private boards, commissions and other areas of leadership needed to benefit the community. NWAEL aims to prepare participants for leadership and service positions in Northwest Arkansas.
