Avoid Common Mistakes Executive Directors Make

If you have less than three years of experience in directing a life-affirming pregnancy center, medical clinic, maternity home, or nonprofit adoption agency, the New Director training is perfect for you. When you combine the wisdom gained from this training with your calling from the Lord, you are truly prepared to navigate effectively, avoid the pitfalls, and increase your effectiveness as a leader.

Equally as important, the New Director training training qualifies toward the Life Affirming Specialist (LAS) designation.
