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.
Stay tuned for more information on our next ED Forum on December 12th.
Leadership Speaker Series
These quarterly gatherings are an opportunity to delve into an issue impacting nonprofits, share great stories, and meet other nonprofit leaders and emerging leaders. Some inspiration can be a good thing and a new contact may well become and important partner or life-long friend.
