The Louisiana Association of Nonprofit Organizations wants to know how nonprofits will fill an anticipated gap in leadership amid a wave of CEO and Board Member retirements expected in coming years.

"Who will lead us?”

To address this serious question and to improve recruitment and retention of nonprofit leaders, LANO has partnered with Pathfinder Solutions to launch Path With a Heart, an initiative to find practical solutions to sustainable leadership for Louisiana’s nonprofit sector.


In Daring to Lead, a survey of 3,000 nonprofit executives conducted this year by CompassPoint and the Meyers Foundation, 17% had already given notice or were considering leaving their posts, and a staggering 67% anticipate leaving within five years...

With thousands of important missions in the balance—including yours—we need your help.

The first step is a comprehensive assessment of the career pathways of Louisiana’s nonprofit workforce. A carefully developed online survey for nonprofit employees seeks responses from more than 1,000 participants currently working in our sector. The survey will run until August 11, 2011.

Survey Link:

Please give us approximately 15 minutes of your day to answer this important survey. We ask that you share this note and link with your networks and encourage everyone you know in the sector to contribute just a little of their time to this worthy effort.

Why participate?

Results from this survey will change the way we address the needs of the nonprofit workforce and communicate those needs to elected leaders and other allies. This survey will determine the motivations and priorities of nonprofit employees and help improve working conditions in the sector.

Need more incentive?

Participants in this survey can win an iPad, or a three-month subscription to CausePlanet’s valuable executive information service, or three months added to your current LANO membership, all free of charge!

The winner of the Grand Prize iPad and multiple winners of CausePlanet subscriptions and LANO membership extensions will be announced after a random drawing held at LANO’s annual conference, Leadership Makes the Difference, August 25-26, 2001 in New Orleans.

We encourage all to attend LANO’s annual conference for a full report and analysis of survey findings by researchers Dr. Jeff Pryor and Alexandra Mitchell, and a presentation of the nationwide Path With a Heart initiative to assure our nonprofits are lead well into the 21st Century.
