Why Are We Hosting the Hoosier Leadership Institute?

A crisis is looming in the field of disabilities. Fully two-thirds of current CEOs and executive directors of nonprofit organizations and an equal number of government senior managers, anticipate remaining in their positions for five years or fewer. Many leaders of disability organizations are reaching retirement age and there is not a next generation of leaders prepared to move into these positions. In a recent study of intellectual/developmental disability organizations by The University of Delaware, over 50% of the CEOs surveyed did not have a succession plan for their organizations. Almost without exception, the leadership crisis has been a major topic of focus at recent conferences for disability professionals.

While some generic non-profit management and leadership courses are available nationally, none exist that are specific to leaders in the complex and changing field of disabilities services. The National Leadership Consortium on Developmental Disabilities is best known for its intensive, week-long Leadership Institutes which are offered at the University of Delaware and at other locations nationally and internationally.
