With the goal of developing a pipeline of trained leaders to serve on API nonprofit boards, APCF co-leads and implements the Board Leadership Program with the Asian American Professional Association. Offered annually since 2015, the six-month program includes sessions focused on developing effective board leaders on topics such as board governance, finance management, strategic planning, fundraising, and more. Participants also have the option of interning with an API nonprofit board, with an opportunity to be selected as a board member of that nonprofit upon completion of the program.
