Danvers, MA—Over 400 executive directors and board members from nonprofits across Essex County will gather for the 2014 Institute for Trustees, a premiere leadership conference hosted by the Essex County Community Foundation, Saturday, March 22, at the at Pingree School in Hamilton, MA.
Keynote speaker, Billy Starr, whose leadership has developed the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge into an organization rarely found in either the corporate or nonprofit worlds, will draw on his passion to elevate a cause, build the PMC, and start a fundraising movement that last year raised the largest sum ever contributed to a charity by an athletic fundraising event anywhere in the world. One hundred percent of every rider-raised dollar from the PMC goes to cancer research and patient care.
Also new this year to the Institute will be a curated electronic ECCF Flipboard magazine highlighting specific resources from Institute speakers. In addition to offering a range of workshops for all levels of board members and executive directors of nonprofits at the Institute, the ECCF Flipboard magazine showcases additional articles from several leaders, including Starr.
The ECCF Magazine is available at https://flipboard.com/section/institute-for-trustees-bgG2Wm.
