2016 Conference Update

Tue, November 24, 2015 5:15 PM | Susan Grivno

The Conference Committee is excited to announce that the keynote speaker for the 2016 Annual Conference will be Kathy LeMay, the founder and co-president of Raising Change, Inc!

Kathy has raised $175 million to benefit women, children and animals in the U.S. and around the world. She began her global activism in war-torn Bosnia and has since worked with social change leaders throughout the world creating strategies to elevate the status of women and girls. She is a sought-after international speaker, author of The Generosity Plan, and coach to some of the world's leading philanthropists. Her second book, Letters for Humanity, is due out in Fall 2016.

We hope you'll be able to join us to hear her, and to enjoy the rest of the conference, this spring!

Do you have an idea for an educational session at this spring's conference? The Conference Committee is still accepting educational session proposals. You can submit your proposal on the Call For Conference Speaker Presentations page here. Proposals should include a brief description of the session, a working title and a short personal bio. The complete presentations will be be due in late March. 

Please contact Conference Co-Chairs Lisa Foster or Amy Begg with any questions about the 2016 conference.
