Fordham Westchester Helps to Link Volunteer and Professional Leaders in Nonprofit Sector


More than 650 people attended the Not-For-Profit Leadership Summit VIII on May 10 at the Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown, N.Y.

Fordham Westchester participated as one of several nonprofit sponsors of the event, which linked volunteer and professional leaders in the nonprofit sector.

Participants had the opportunity to:

• identify emerging challenges and opportunities;
• shape new leadership strategies; and
• build organizations that excel.

Keynote speakers included U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and futurist Andrew Zolli, executive director of PopTech. Moreover, real-time electronic polling pointed to how the economy is impacting the industry.
