Kickoff of 2023-2024 CEO Leadership Institute (CEOI)

The 2023 – 2024 NACHC CEO Leadership Institute (CEOI) is a six-month training program for CEOs of health centers to learn with and from peers, and hone health center-specific leadership skills. The institute includes expert-led courses, practice-based case studies, mentorship from experienced FQHC CEOs, peer networking, and personal assessment to build self-knowledge.

The program kicks off with a two-day workshop on October 22-23, 2023, ahead of NACHC’s FOM/IT Conference and Expo in Las Vegas. It continues with monthly webinars and group meetings and concludes with a closing workshop in Atlanta on April 19, 2024. Take advantage of this opportunity for peer networking and competencies development.

The CEO Institute will…

  • Examine the fiduciary role of the CEO and gain an understanding of key health center financial measures.
  • Identify and utilize key strategies to ensure a productive CEO/board working relationship.
  • Explore strategic, data-driven decision-making strategies.
