About this event

Cal Lutheran's Center for Nonprofit Leadership and Pepperdine University's Nonprofit Leadership Collaborative invite you to attend the 10th Annual Nonprofit Leadership Institute.

The Institute is the dream of Regan Schaffer, Dena Jenson and Doug Green who have coordinated this event since its inception.  This special event reflects a true partnership and collaboration between practitioners, educators, community members, students and friends.

Our Theme: With So Much at Stake
The last few years have been characterized by extremes:  from weather events to mass shootings to racist outpourings to polarization from the Federal government down to tiny village meetings.  Our country seems to lurch from one crisis to another. What role does the nonprofit sector play in all of this and what role should we play? 

In this year’s Institute we will explore a variety of options and look through a range of lenses at what we are and what we must become.  In addition, we'll glean Kim's insight and experience as we explore "What’s New, What’s Hot, What’s Over, What’s Not in the Nonprofit Sector".
Join us for a day of celebration, inter-generational learning and networking at the 10th anniversary of the Nonprofit Leadership Institute!
