Foundation Leadership Forum

About This Event

AGB’s Foundation Leadership Forum is the only national conference that brings together university and college foundation board members and chief executives with campus presidents and other senior staff. Each January, the Foundation Leadership Forum affords an opportunity to share insights, ask important questions, and get solutions-based responses to the governance issues facing foundations and their boards. Explore innovative strategies and share best practices with higher education leaders from across the country. Most participants attend in teams comprised of board members and staff leaders who use the conference as an opportunity to reflect on past challenges and recommit to their priorities for the year ahead.
