Thank you is the best place to begin. Thank you to all of you who made space in your life to show up and be present for two full days of the Leadership Summit and to those who took the extra day to come to our pre-conference classes. Thank you for stepping in and stepping up to comfortable and uncomfortable conversations. Thank you for making space to laugh and connect and learn and dance.

As Joan mentioned in her remarks, she is making a special offer available to attendees of our 2019 Leadership Summit.  Many of you did not get the info a link to join so we  wanted to make sure you had all the information you needed to consider joining.  Here’s a brief note from Joan. Thanks to all of you for your gift of service to Alaska and for the opportunity to participate in a stellar conference.  As I mentioned I have an online membership site for a very modest monthly subscription (cancellable at any time – seriously!) called The Nonprofit Leadership Lab.  We started this adventure 2 years ago for board and staff leaders of small-midsized nonprofits for whom coaches and consultants would be cost prohibitive. Many of our members… Read more »

As a nonprofit leader, do you see opportunities to make small and big changes in your organization, in your community, and beyond? Do you wonder if your organization is ready to tackle the big issues in your community? Do you often think-if only the larger system would operate differently? These are just a few of the questions that Alaska nonprofit board and staff leaders are asking as we all experience a time of change. Change can take many shapes – maybe it’s the way we show up as leaders, maybe it’s how our organization is structured, or maybe it’s a major shift in our community. This summit will explore what change looks like at all levels and how we can participate in it. The 2015 Foraker Leadership Summit: “Transform. Create…. Read more »
