The Chief Executive Program: Community and Culture
This 1-year program serves an international group of 50 outstanding CEOs whose organizations work closely with communities on creative placemaking initiatives. Throughout the program, NAS helps leaders work individually and in groups to broaden their thinking about their environments and how to lead change. We support their efforts to bring new ideas to their organizations and communities. By the end of the experience, participants will have the ideas, tools and connections to collectively strengthen the cultural sector. They will join their colleagues from the first and second cohorts of The Chief Executive Program as a network of leaders and organizations positioned to introduce field-level change. Learn more »

Creative Community Launchpad
January 22-24, 2015 | Palo Alto, CA
Fellows have designed a project. They've worked with NAS, their mentors and the community to draft and refine their project pitch. Now is the time to hear what grantmakers and leaders in the field have to say. Fellows will attend a two-day in-person feedback session where they will present their pitch. This is a rare opportunity for Fellows to engage in face-to-face conversations with funders, cultivate relationships and build support.
NAS works with funders to create custom leadership programs for states and large cities; with service organizations to create custom programs for their memberships; and with large cultural institutions to create custom programs for an institution. These programs leverage NAS team seminars, faculty, facilitation and consulting resources and our expertise in the design and delivery of learning-based organizational improvement programs.
