We acknowledge that the success of EYLACCB 2020 is due to the commitment and contribution from our Community Partners and supporters. This has been a fruitful year despite challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  We were able to adapt to online course delivery for the second half of our Emerging Leaders in Governance Program (ELGP) and hold an online Unconvention 

We are delighted to share we have achieved the following: 

  • 18 ELGP 2020 graduates
  • 4 new Community Partners

In addition, we offer you four projects undertaken by the participants of the ELGP 2020 cohort. These are great resources for your board and can be downloaded here
