Managing the day-to-day affairs of a network includes a suite of leadership skills and knowledge, including facilitation, governance structures, conflict resolution, relationship management, and strategic planning.

“The NLTA was a worthwhile experience that broadened my horizons, created access to experts in the field, and gave me a platform to share my experiences with participants. I think the NLTA is a valuable community of practice about network leadership.”
The Network Leadership Training Academy was my greatest experience for professional growth and new learning this year. It was exhilarating to discover other network leaders who were dealing with the same issues we wrestle with. We found many resources and sessions highly applicable to our work
