Baton Rouge, LA – Forum 35 and LANO are now accepting applications for the 2013 John W. Barton Sr. Community Leadership Development Program.
Since 2004, Forum 35 and LANO have partnered to train young emerging leaders in nonprofit governance and then match them with local nonprofit organizations for service on their Board of Directors. The program is named in honor of John W. Barton Sr. in recognition of his support of Baton Rouge's nonprofit sector for over 75 years, including his vision and commitment to developing new and emerging leaders.
"There are few things more critical to the success of nonprofit organizations than competent volunteer board leadership."
