Cultivating Leaders  

Building today’s and tomorrow’s conservation leaders

Director’s Roundtable

The Roundtable is a way for Executive Directors to learn together, as a group, about how they can run more effective conservation organizations. This cohort model of learning covers topics such as using new technology, forming partnerships with for-profit businesses, restructuring operations, dealing with changing demographics and new ways of organizing to build community support.

Students and recent graduates gain inspiration and on-the-job training while providing much-needed staff power to conservation organizations each year.
