BoardSource BLF 2015
Sharon and Peter attended the BoardSource Leadership Forum in New Orleans in November to learn more about current issues in nonprofit board governance. Prominent topics: nonprofit advocacy, executive leadership transition in the face of the “silver tsunami” of boomer CEO and ED retirements, and the growing importance of nonprofits recruiting younger people from multiple sectors into the leadership pipeline. Send us an e-mail to hear more about what we learned.
