United Way of Westchester and Putnam will host its Not-for-Profit Leadership Summit in Tarrytown next week.
The summit, the 15th to be held in the county, will start at 8 a.m. May 1 at the Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown. The all-day event features breakfast and luncheon keynote speakers, 16 breakout sessions on nonprofit strategies and networking.
United Way of Westchester and Putnam launched the summit in 2002 with the help of then-U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, who was keynote speaker.
Alana Sweeny, president and CEO of United Way of Westchester and Putnam said the focus of that first summit was to “provide nonprofits with the tools needed to propel their organizations into the future, and that is still true today.”
Two keynote speeches, one at breakfast and another at lunch, will address how nonprofits can improve and capitalize on their public standing.
Ilsa Flanagan, director of the National Reframing Initiative at the National Human Services Assembly, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit, will speak at the breakfast.
David Birdsell, Marxe dean and professor at Baruch College’s Austin W. Marxe School of Public and International Affairs, will give the lunch keynote.
