Join us in Miami!

The Council on Foundations will host its second annual CEO & Trustee Retreat, in partnership with BoardSource. This dynamic learning event will take place December 5-6, 2017 in Miami, Florida. The CEO & Trustee Retreat is designed to help energize foundation executives through leadership development, exposure to stimulating intellectual activities and an opportunity to re-charge personally through networking and peer learning with colleagues. The CEO & Trustee Retreat will bring together foundation CEOs and members of their respective Boards for a unique chance to engage in challenging dialogues that will strengthen their relationship and boost organizational success. Facilitators are experts on board governance as well as leading practitioners in philanthropy — including Gloria Johnson-Cusack, Chairman of the Board of Firelight Foundation and Anne Wallestad, President and CEO of BoardSource.

Building on conversations from the 2015 Winter Retreat for CEOs, this year’s retreat will convene with the following objectives:

  • Discuss barriers to successful executive relationships and equip participants with tangible strategies they can implement within their organizations.
  • Cultivating a positive relationship between the Board and the CEO. 
  • Learn guidelines on how to successfully manage a multigenerational workplace and board room, and discuss how the varied strengths of each age group can be used to boost overall organizational success.
  • Increasing knowledge around the political climate within which Foundations are operating.

The CEO & Trustee Retreat is open only to foundation CEOs and Trustees.
