BoardSource Leadership Forum: Igniting Leadership for Power, Purpose and Impact

Date & time

October 18–20, 2017


Seattle, WA

The BoardSource Leadership Forum is a conference focused on nonprofit leadership at the highest level – the board of directors. Every two years, BoardSource gathers more than 800 board members, chief executives, staff, and nonprofit professionals for two days to discuss the newest thinking and best practices in nonprofit governance. Through plenary sessions, workshops, discussions, presentations, and networking events, our participants learn how to guide their organizations toward greater impact and mission fulfillment.

This Year’s Theme

Igniting Leadership for Power, Purpose, and Impact embodies our commitment to nonprofit leaders’ role as standard-bearers for their organizations. We believe that together, board members and chief executives can develop nonprofit organizations that are not only healthy and viable, but are also innovative, adaptive, and relentless in their focus on core purpose. This holds true whether leaders are advocating for the issues that affect their missions, exploring the benefits associated with intentional partnerships and collaborations, or sharpening their understanding of the relationship between overall strategy, effectiveness, and impact. BLF 2017 is the opportunity for us to come together as a community to support, empower, and inspire one another, and to ensure that every social sector organization has the leadership it needs to fulfill its mission and advance the public good. We invite you to join us in that vision.
