Executive Director's Message - Jenny Berg
Our theme for 2020 is legacy. We are working on building the legacy of Leadership Council and we want your input. We are writing to ask for your assistance. The Board of Directors for the Leadership Council for Nonprofits is convening in April 2020 for a retreat where they will create a pathway for continued success. Data is the key and this is where you, as a supporter of our great nonprofit community, can be part of charting the future. 

We are asking if you would please take two minutes to respond to just two questions on the link  HERE  or copy/paste this url into your browser -  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/5PZTF7Z . Your responses will be kept in confidence and will be tabulated by a third-party, Anne M. Maxfield, LLC, for presentation at the board retreat. 

Thank you for your time and ideas on how together we can build a legacy for our nonprofit sector.
Compensation & Benefits Survey  
Nonprofit leaders are looking for current compensation & benefits data they can use for board and staff. Our 2020 survey, compiled with data provided by nonprofits is a great tool for your planning purposes. Our goal is to get 200 agencies participating in this survey to provide very rich data points.  We sent out our survey link to many of you, or someone from your agency, a few weeks ago. If you feel that someone in your organization did not get the survey, just drop us an email ( info@leadershipcouncil.us ) and we can forward you a link to complete it. Deadline for completing your survey is 3/16/2020.
Securing the Future - Recap and 2021 Save the Date!
What a great crowd we had at our 20th anniversary of the Securing the Future conference with keynote Barry Posner. It’s such a great event to connect with friends, refresh, renew and learn something new.  

"The quality of the national keynote speaker is really good every year. The breakout sessions are very good and information is highly applicable. Also, the networking with the attendees is very valuable. This is an excellent event for that.”
Congratulations to our inaugural honorees!
