elevate your impact

institute for trustees

ECCF’s annual Institute for Trustees (IFT) brings hundreds of nonprofit leaders together each year for a full day of educational workshops led by experts in the sector. Now in its 12th year, the IFT is attended by more than 400 nonprofit executive directors and their board chairs and is known for its powerful education and networking opportunties.

The 2021 IFT is being planned for April 2021. Due to the evolving health crisis, the kickoff and workshops will both be virtual this year. Sign up and be the first to know when registration goes live!
