Ventura County Nonprofit Leadership Council

The Ventura County Nonprofit Leadership Council is a collective of thought-leaders that seeks to advance philanthropy and build stronger nonprofit leaders serving our region.

Each year, the Council offers a series of five topic-driven convenings that serve as a forum for both seasoned and emerging nonprofit leaders to network with colleagues and peers, deepen understanding of important sector issues and develop a shared voice to advocate for the sector.

Stewarded by a dedicated volunteer steering committee, the Council itself is a point of convergence for the sector and affords a unique opportunity for leaders across the county to gather, explore collaborative relationships, and build their own professional development networks

Convenings are held every other month, September – May, with a focus on cutting edge topics effecting leaders in the field.  Each meeting is chaired by a local nonprofit leader with panel discussions and content experts facilitating meaningful dialogue. Individuals can participate in the Council and attend all five sessions by becoming a member for $75 or by attending individual sessions for $25 each.

The theme for the 2016/2017  program year is:

LEADERSHIP CHALLENGE RETHINK:  Hard Questions and Fresh Perspectives

Each of the five gatherings will build upon the theme and will:

  • Examine and define relevant current issues and opportunities shaping the sector.
  • Expand thought leadership to influence the field
  • Build, strengthen and leverage our networks for change.
