What People are saying about the Grow To Lead Mentorship Program:
“Participation in BANL’s Grow to Lead program has increased my understanding of best practices for working with a non-profit board exponentially! The one-on-one mentorship has been invaluable in working through problems and coming up with creative solutions to my particular board relations and governance. Access to other experts available through this program and participation in the ICD program would not have been possible without the support of this program and BANL. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
