Panel

Brad Earl, CFO, Medford School District
Roger Hassenpflug, CEO, Living Opportunities
Brenda Johnson, CEO, La Clinica

Lunch & Networking at 11:30
Presentation at 12:00

The nonprofit environment is rapidly changing and requires effective leadership to respond to changing economic, political, and technological conditions that impact the design and delivery of programs and services. Join our experienced panelists of nonprofit leaders for a lively discussion on effective leadership models for engaging your staff and Board in achieving your mission. Our facilitator and panelists will share their in-depth experiences with:

  • Building and maintaining staff morale
  • Recognizing and nurturing leadership in others
  • Effective leadership styles for different stages in an organization’s development
  • Fostering long-term vision while managing short-term crises
  • Managing growth and contraction, or “right sizing” your organization

Both emerging and experienced nonprofit leaders can benefit from learning how to identify and work through specific leadership challenges.
