The Annual NCDC Leadership Summit is a 2-day intensive program geared toward executives and department directors.

The recommended actions that flow from the Summit directly influence NCDC planning and programming.

We will address:

And will focus on:

  • Mission Development during times of significant change
  • These changes will include leadership, new management structures, implications for and understanding of mission, our donors, our constituents.
