The Center for Community Leadership offers a peer reviewed certification program for community leaders interested in demonstrating that they have achieved excellence in management and ethical accountability.
The CCL Standards for Excellence includes benchmarks that describe how an ethical, accountable community leader operates. Becoming certified in the Standards for Excellence empowers you as a leader and the organization(s) you represent the opportunity to demonstrate to partners, funders and the general public that you have made a self-investment to be well managed and responsibly governed.
Annually, CCL offers the Standards for Excellence Certification Clinic all across the region, including Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. Learn about these guiding principles for leadership operations and take the first step towards CCL Standards for Excellence Certification.
