Chief Executive
Peer Circles


Non-profit executives in our community have different strengths and areas for development. Some excel in fundraising yet desire strategic planning skills. Other have mastered delegation and budgeting yet seek growth in staff mentoring or board governance. What better way to learn than peers supporting and helping peers?

One thing for certain: the capabilities and knowledge of a non-profit's chief executive officer or executive director contributes to its excellence and impact.

As a leader for nearly 35 years in developing programs and services for non-profit excellence, Glasser/Schoenbaum proudly introduces …. The Chief Executive Peer Circles!

Based on a variety of factors including executive experience level and skills development interests, we will create cohorts (groups) of 7-10 executives that will meet for 2 hours approximately 10 times over a 12-month period. A facilitator will participate to allow participants to get the most out of the experiences. Participants must agree in writing to keep all information shared in these sessions strictly confidential. As relationships form, members of each group may also meet informally or serve as resources and mentors for each other. We also plan to host at least two social get-togethers over the 12-month period.

Space is limited! For more information, please contact Charlene Altenhain, Chief Executive Officer, at or (941) 867-4387.

Real estate is one of the greatest costs in a business budget. Our partnership with The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center allows more money to go towards our mission. And what better place to house our office than on a campus with nineteen other outreach agencies.
