Leadership Arts 2019-2020 Session #9 is our annual Board Fair & Graduation Celebration. Rescheduled from May, this year’s event will be entirely virtual to ensure as many organizations and graduates can take part. After celebrating the resilient Leadership Arts 2019-2020 class, each cultural nonprofit will be assigned a virtual breakout room. Attendees will select their top three organizations in advance and rotate through the virtual breakout rooms for small group or one-on-one conversations.
All past Leadership Arts alumni are encouraged to participate. Please let us know if you’re coming by July 23. You’ll be sent the list of cultural organizations after that and we ask that you submit your top three choices by July 27 at noon.
The Board Fair is an opportunity for cultural nonprofit organizations of all sizes and types to meet Leadership Arts graduates and start the conversation about volunteer service and engagement. Registration for nonprofit organizations is now closed.
We want all participating organizations to put their best foot forward. Check out this recorded Zoom presentation from Wednesday, July 15, 2020:
