ED Forums are a low-effort, low-cost, and high-impact way 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 sector.
