New Executive Director Training -- Day 1
This training requires an additional registration fee. Go to the MIE website for more info and to register: https://mielegalaid.org/civicrm/event/info%3Fid%3D30%26reset%3D1

This two day training is newly updated and more relevant than ever to the challenges facing the legal aid executive director today. It is designed for the new directors of LSC-funded, IOLTA-funded, elder law, pro bono and protection and advocacy programs.

The intent of the New Executive Director Training is to help new directors, who typically learn on-the-job, to more quickly achieve deeper insight into their work. The training stresses both (1) knowing what should be done to lead an effective program, and (2) actually doing what needs to be done.
