Leadership comes up a lot in the context of what’s going to help Springfield turn itself around. And we’d like to think that next generation leaders are they key in this region in particular. They’ve got energy, independence, access to new media (which bypasses traditional gatekeepers and allows new ideas to reach new audiences), awareness of ideas far beyond the region, and excel in sectors that hold great promise regionally: technology, the knowledge economy, and the creative economy.
On June 10th, the Bay Path College Nonprofit Management & Philanthropy Program will host Frances Kunreuther, Director of the Building Movement Project. Kunreuther will draw on her new book, “Working Across Generations: Defining the Future of Nonprofit Leadership,” to help guide our thinking about these critical transitions. Register here. And speaking of transitions, the departure of Springfield’s governor-appointed control board makes these issues even more relevant.
