Event Details

Anne Wallestad, President & CEO, BoardSource

In times of change, nonprofit leaders-- board members and executives-- face big questions. Questions about their future, their values, and their willingness to advocate for the issues that matter most to their mission and the people they serve:

  • What will this mean for our mission and the people we serve?
  • How might our strategies and approaches need to change to reflect our new reality?
  • When and how should we be organizing for change?

These are the moments where boards are called to lead. Join Anne Wallestad, President and CEO of BoardSource, for reflection and discussion on this moment in nonprofit leadership-- what we can learn from what's happening across the sector and how to translate that into positive momentum and action here in Oregon.
