The first 501(c) Success Series program of 2018 features Anne Wallestad, President & CEO of BoardSource, a globally recognized organization focused on strengthening nonprofit board and executive leadership.
During this program, Anne will provide an overview of the 2017 Leading with Intent
report, the latest in BoardSource's series of studies tracking and analyzing trends in nonprofit board leadership. Following her remarks, Anne will be joined on stage by panelists David Oliver, attorney with Berkowitz Oliver LLP and Tony Twyman, Sr. Vice President, U.S. Trust for a facilitated discussion of opportunities for effective board development.
During her time at BoardSource, Anne has overseen a period of remarkable growth and change, helping BoardSource expand its leadership voice and build a model of program delivery that has resulted in a more than 200 percent growth in the number of leaders served. She has played an instrumental role in the launch of several new leadership initiatives including the Stand for Your Mission
campaign, which challenges board leaders to play a stronger role in advocacy and public policy.
Under Anne's leadership, BoardSource has been recognized as a finalist for the prestigious Drucker Prize for innovation, and named a Best Nonprofit to Work For in 2016 and 2017. Anne herself has been honored as one of The Nonprofit Times’ “Power & Influence Top 50.”
