The African American Board Leadership Institute partners with organizations across the state to provide outstanding professional development opportunities to individuals and nonprofit organizations in the community. The workshops, forums and events are designed for lifelong learners who wish to share ideas and maintain ongoing membership in the organization.

Part of our Educational Leadership Series is a Commissions forum that will provide professional development opportunities for individuals seeking an appointment to boards and commissions. Seasoned commissioners share information with individuals who are interested in applying for a government commission appointment. This commissions forum was created to support people of color who have a desire to make a positive change in their communities.
