ED Forums are a low-effort, low-cost, and high-impact opportunity to gather with your executive director peers and learn from each other. Each forum gives you the chance to participate in three roundtable discussions led by an experienced executive director. Participants share problems and solutions and trade tips and resources. For over a decade, ED Forum participants consistently report that they left with actionable information and an extra bounce in their step from networking with others in our field.
Upcoming Forum: September 26, 2014, 8:30 - 10:30 am at the 2100 Building.
Leadership Speaker Series
These quarterly gatherings are an opportunity to delve into an issue impacted nonprofits, to share great stories and to meet other nonprofit leaders and emerging leaders. A little inspiration can be a good thing and a new contact may well become and important partner or a life-long friend.
