    Foundations rely heavily on the energy, talents, and skills of their board members, as individuals and as a group. This one-day seminar is designed especially for trustees and board members of leanly staffed foundations looking to increase their impact, hone their leadership skills, and more effectively manage change as they advance the missions of their organizations.

    Through interactive presentations, facilitated discussions, and networking opportunities, participants will come away with tools, inspiration, and connections to elevate their own and their foundation’s performance.

    This seminar is being held in conjunction with Exponent Philanthropy's 2018 National Conference.
