2013 Nonprofit Leadership Summit

​All In!

Owning Our Future

It’s time.  

It is time to move from intense conversations about “what kind“ of  leadership is needed to ensure the vibrancy of our state to owning a bold, clear leadership role.

Join us as we convene the NH nonprofit sector to identify what our shared voice must say, explore ways to insert our leadership into the decision-making process and articulate a new frame about the impact of our work.


Thinking Big & Shooting for the Stars

On the Fence About Attending?

Browse these stories from people who have read Everyone Leads by keynote speaker Paul Schmitz. The excitement and inspiration expressed in these stories is contagious.
Come to the Summit and get more inspired.

Check out this document outlining some of the Health Monadnock initiatives and their progress toward their big, bold goal. It makes you start to think "they could actually do this!" And if they can do that, what else can be done? 
Come to the Summit and learn more about how they're doing it.

For decades a variety of constraints - as well as embedded habits - have tempered the capacity of nonprofit organizations and the sector itself from charting big, bold goals.

Why not set a vision for a community where no child goes to bed hungry? Why not set a vision for a community where no senior spends a week alone?

There is mounting evidence that setting a stunningly ambitious goal can not only spark change but lead to surprising results.

Healthy Monadnock 2020 representatives, Linda Rubin and Rudy Fedrizzi, will launch the Summit by sharing the community’s bold move to cast a big aidacious goal and where that journey has taken them.

Uncovering the Secret Power that Surrounds You

Leadership change isn’t coming, it’s here.  Countries are being changed from the ground up. Companies are taking direction from on-the-ground consumers who shop with the click of a mouse. Politicians are tweeting to the masses and listening to their feedback.

The nonprofit sector’s secret power is that it lives and works on the ground floor of communities.

Keynote Paul Schmitz, author of “Everyone Leads,” will share what he has learned as Director of Public Allies about building leadership from the ground up and utilizing the talent that is all around us to achieve significant outcomes.
Selected by the Rockefeller Foundation as a Next Generation Leadership Fellow and recipient of Fast Company Magazine’s Social Capitalist Award for Innovation, Paul will engage the audience in an exploration of a new frame on leadership in the 21st century.

Watch this four minute video where Paul goes out and talks to a variety of people about leadership.

Be on the Ground Floor for the Sector's Bold Audacious Goals!

In the afternoon, we will weigh in on what the sector’s big, bold audacious goals for the future should be and how we will mobilize the talent that surrounds us to be successful.

Using a fast-paced engagement process we will dive into the following questions:

  • What is the sector’s identity?

  • How can we engage in more transparent and candid conversations with our funding partners about the true cost of the pivotal work we take on?  

  • What myths must we put to bed?  

  • Who and how will outcomes be determined and measured?  

  • What must we get better at?

  • What must we stop doing?

The Early Bird Deadline has passed, but don't let cost be a barrier. Scholarships are available.
