The Leadership Circle for Emerging Development Professionals is a monthly peer group meeting of new development professionals (0-3 years of experience) from small nonprofit organizations to share challenges and strategies for personal and organizational success. In an informal, roundtable format, you will have an opportunity to share your insights, gain practical solutions and alleviate any on-the-job isolation or stress that you might experience.

The peer circle will gather monthly at Foundation Center West in San Francisco on 5 Fridays from 9:30-11:00am, beginning on February 1st. Dates are as follows: February 1st, March 1st, April 5th, May 3, and June 7th, 2019. Participants must register before January 25th, 2019. The $125 fee covers the full cost of the series. To maximize benefit, we require attendance for the entire series in order to create an effective learning cohort.
