SAVE THE DATE:   Leadership Summit 2023   |  Sept 19–21  |  Washington, DC

As a leader, you divide your time and focus between three levels of impact: ME, yourself as a visionary, innovator, guide, and engineer.  WE, your organization, team, or other circle of influence.  And COMMUNITY, the nonprofit sector as a whole. The Leadership Summit is your opportunity to come together with other sector leaders to envision what’s possible.

The TNPA Leadership Summit prioritizes networking time over podium speakers.  We use Liberating Structures, facilitation techniques that stimulate critical conversations and liberate the full potential of any group to elevate the expertise in the room. Attendees will take these facilitation tools and skills back to their own organizations to help ensure all voices are being heard and to spur greater leadership and innovation.

What Summit Attendees Are Saying

“High-level, strategic thinking approach to all the sessions. It wasn’t the normal ‘how to implement xyz,’ but more ‘how do we transform our industry for the better.’ This was exciting!”

“The configuration, with a great mix of partners and nonprofits, brought together in a small group setting was amazing for networking and group discussion.”

“The small size gave you a great ability to network and have great 1:1 conversations.”

“Great people. New ideas. Thoughtfully executed.”

“Best Leadership Summit I have attended.”
