Who Should Attend?

Board Leadership Summits are for SCANPO members only and are designed exclusively for nonprofit board members and their CEOs. Each Summit will kick off with a general session to address current board trends, evergreen governance topics and key insights from local seasoned board members. Following this presentation, participants will select and attend two Lead and Learn sessions led by nonprofit leaders and business partner experts. The purpose of these small group sessions is to facilitate peer learning around a specific board topic. Our goal is to group participants who share similar experience levels and lead comparably sized organizations.
