Board Leadership Summits

Who Should Attend?

Board Leadership Summits are for Together SC members ONLY and are designed exclusively for nonprofit board members and their CEOs to attend together.

Each Summit will kick off with a general session to address current board trends, evergreen governance topics and key insights.

Following this presentation, participants will attend breakout sessions focused on Strong Board Chair – CEO Relations. Participants will also attend 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 specific board topics.
