This snapshot will provide a profile of who works in our sector as well as what are their organizational and leadership needs as they address the challenging issues facing our community. A panel of local nonprofit Directors will share real-experience perspectives and discuss how they are addressing their organization’s capability, development, talent pipeline and more alongside national expert and trainer Andy Robinson.
