Please join Philanthropy Northwest and the Campion Foundation for a conversation with Anne Wallestad, CEO of BoardSource. 

BoardSource will be bringing their biennial conference to the Pacific Northwest for the first time in October of 2017, and Anne will be with us here in Seattle to connect with leaders in the nonprofit and philanthropic community to listen and learn how the conference can best support the needs of our local and regional nonprofit community, as well as invite our involvement as BoardSource kicks off formal planning and outreach for the conference later this Spring. She will also share insights on BoardSource’s research and leadership in the sector, including its continued work to expand board leadership and engagement in advocacy as a part of the Stand for Your Mission Campaign.

Please join us to share your insights, as well as to learn more about BoardSource, its conference, and the opportunity to connect our local efforts with BoardSource’s longstanding efforts to build and support strong board leadership and governance.
