National Leadership Institute


The National Leadership Institute has matured from a four-day leadership conference to a year round development and training initiative. NLI encompasses the National Leadership Conference, six Regional Leadership Conferences, and leadership enhancement activities and workshop through the year for all members.

NSBE NLI Fellows Program

The NSBE NLI Fellows Program, formerly known as the NSBE Shadow Initiative is here to serve as the premier leadership development program for NSBE members. The program will provide participants with the chance to get FREE leadership Training from October until May. Though the name of the program may have changed, the purpose remains the same. We are seeking to develop the leadership skills of all participants, stimulate interest in NSBE leadership, identify & support future NSBE leaders and prepare prospective candidates for the NSBE election/appointment process. Participants should complete the program with a deeper understanding of leadership and the importance it has in regards to the future of NSBE.
