Certified Community Leadership Practitioner (CCLP)

Certified Community Leadership Practitioner Certification (CCLP) is designed to enhance individual performance, elevate professional standards, and recognize association, chamber of commerce, and other nonprofit professionals who demonstrate the knowledge essential to the practice of program development in a leadership organization.

All steps must be completed to be eligible to obtain the CCLP designation.
