Hello, and welcome to the training and technical assistance options for you as a new Executive Director of a Center for Independent Living. I hope you will be interested in the monthly Executive Director Call. They take place on the second Monday of the month (unless it is a holiday) and you can subscribe by going to https://www.ilru.org/home and signing up for the email list.

I also offer a regular one-to-one call to new EDs – weekly or less often if weekly is too much – so that you can ask whatever questions have come up that were not urgent but you’d like to discuss.  Let’s talk and see if that is useful for you. Email me at paulamcelwee.ilru@gmail.com and we can set a time.

We have an excellent course on line which you complete at your own pace. You’ll find it here: https://www.ilru.org/training/management-101-guide-for-new-cil-executive-directors-1-course

Here are a couple of links you might find useful. Do you have a background with Independent Living? If not, this history may be interesting:


Here are the requirements reviewed by your primary funder when they perform onsite review: https://www.ilru.org/training/ready-for-review-using-acl-s-compliance-outcome-monitoring-protocol-comp-tool-achieve These give you a tool for proactively measuring your conformance with regulations and law.

You might also be interested in financial management training. It is broken into segments for manageable scheduling. https://www.ilru.org/financial-management-for-cils-regulations-and-beyond

Are you a new ED? We have some support for you.
