ANNOUNCEMENT: Independent Sector Press Briefing (July 23, 2009)

July 21, 2009

From the IS press release...

The pace of change in today’s society presents an important opportunity for the nonprofit community to convene a conversation about the trajectory and impact of key trends that will shape the future of the nonprofit sector in the next ten years.

Join Diana Aviv, president and CEO of Independent Sector, and Stephen Heintz, president of the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and co-chair of the Ad Hoc Group on IS Strategic Planning, for a dial-in press briefing on Thursday, July 23 from 11:00–11:30 a.m. EST to learn more about Envisioning Our Future, an exciting new initiative that uses a combination of research and innovative engagement methodologies to:

  • Deepen our collective understanding of the trends that will affect the nonprofit sector;
  • Generate new insights and ideas about how nonprofits and foundations can best address the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead; and
  • Develop a cohort of leaders involved in thinking critically about this work for the sake of their own organizations and the sector at large.

RSVP to Matthew Briggs at [email protected] or (202-467-6134) for call-in details. (Update: Call is limited to members of the press only.)
