BOLD 6 Class Selected by Leadership Council for Nonprofits

 Leadership Council for Nonprofits has selected its sixth cohort for the Board Orientation + Leadership Development program.  The BOLD 6 cohort of 33 individuals was selected by Leadership Council on the heels of the graduation of the BOLD 5 cohort of 39.  “The individuals who want to make a difference in our community have a loud heartbeat and can’t go unnoticed,” said BOLD Program Director Jack FitzGerald.  FitzGerald pointed to the BOLD Podcast, a platform for alumni to share lessons from their board experiences, as a way for the community to listen to the stories coming from BOLD. 

 Beth Hartman, Vice President at Fifth Third Bank, was recently interviewed for the podcast and shared the uniqueness of the BOLD program; “BOLD is the program for anyone who wants to serve the community.”  Over the next eight weeks, participants will receive one-on-one mentorship with a BOLD alumnus, observe nonprofit board meetings, write a reflection letter to their current or future board, and receive instruction from local Executive Directors and nonprofit consultants.
