SECF's 2018 CEO Forum: Beacons of LEADERSHIP
March 27–28, 2018 · Hilton Head, SC · Sonesta Resort

What’s the best way to manage your staff? Does your foundation have a succession plan in place for the years ahead? How can you improve your relationship with board members? What about your own professional development – what’s the next step in your journey as a leader? 

These are only a few of the questions foundation CEOs have told us are on their mind – each of them (and many more!) will drive the conversation at SECF’s 2018 CEO Forum. Register today to join your fellow foundation leaders at the Sonesta Resort on Hilton Head Island for two days of candid, confidential conversations focused on personal and organizational values. 

Whether you lead a family foundation, run a corporate giving program, manage a staff of dozens, or work with only a handful of people, the CEO Forum will provide lasting benefits to you and your organization. All constituencies are welcome and will benefit from both breakout sessions and the chance to connect with a diverse group of colleagues.
