LONG DESCRIPTION:According to research conducted by the Bridgespan Group, Meyer Foundation and Annie E. Casey, there will be a severe deficit of executive leadership available to the nonprofit sector in the next decade. At least three out of four executive directors plan to leave their jobs within the next five years and about half of current younger leaders plan to leave the sector altogether. Baby Boomers are set to retire and the next generation is ambivalent about stepping up to the plate. So, who will replace these exiting executive directors and take up the torch in the nonprofit community? What will the future of nonprofit leadership look like? YNPNdc and the Nonprofit Roundtable invite you to come learn about the current trends in generational change and emerging nonprofit leadership. Join 100 nonprofit leaders for an interactive discussion that will bring existing & emerging leaders together in building a stronger nonprofit sector that is prepared for change, transition, and innovation in an ever-evolving landscape. Speakers include: Patrick Corvington, Senior Associate, Annie E. Casey FoundationFrances Kunreuther, Director, Building Movement Project Lawrence Dark, Executive Director, Good Samaritan FoundationRegina Dull, Executive Director, International Student Conferences Lynsey Wood Jeffries, Deputy Director, Higher Achievement Shannon Doran, Executive Director, Public Leadership Education Network
