Nonprofit Leadership Forum

Rebecca Heyl

Is YOUR brand living up to its potential?

The role of the nonprofit brand has been expanded.  A decade ago it was almost exclusively the purview of the communications department.  Today, it has moved to the C-Suite and boardroom in an effort to advance your mission while strengthening identity, cohesion, and impact.

Join us as we reveal the framework of how to unlock the power of your brand.

The Nonprofit Leadership Forum was established with the help of Plumb, First Republic Bank, The San Diego Foundation and Nonprofit Management Solutions to offer quarterly educational presentations to enhance the success of San Diego’s nonprofit organizations.

Join us for a complimentary lunch and informative discussion for those serving in the nonprofit sector as staff, board members, board chairman or executive directors.

Date: Thursday, September 3, 2015

Time: 11:30AM – 1:00PM 

Location: The San Diego Foundation: 2508 Historic Decatur Road, San Diego, CA  92106
