Independent Sector NGEN Fellowship

Last fall I wrote about the NGEN track at the Independent Sector Conference. This year they are strengthening that track with a NGEN fellowship. This is a great opportunity to network and strengthen your career. From IS: Are you an accomplished young professional already serving as a nonprofit leader?

 Are you ready to magnify your impact through dynamic collaboration with your peers?

 Recognizing that the leaders we need tomorrow are poised to contribute today, Independent Sector is pleased to introduce the American Express NGen Fellows Program. This exciting new program will offer 12 young professionals from IS member organizations a rare opportunity to magnify their impact and accelerate their careers. The program, which includes complementary registration and lodging for the 2009 Annual Conference, will build the capacity of these emerging leaders through tailored online and in-person programming and special networking opportunities.

 American Express NGen Fellows will be a diverse and talented group selected from under-40 staff at IS member organizations.  Visit the IS website to learn more about the benefits of participation in the fellows program, the selection process, and how to apply.  Applications are due August 14, 2009

 The American Express NGen Fellows Program enhances IS's NGen: Moving Nonprofit Leaders from Next to Now program, which is designed to expand and improve the nonprofit talent pool by developing the leadership skills and networks of emerging leaders.  Free to all under-40 conference attendees, NGen offers targeted workshop sessions addressing topics important to emerging leaders and opportunities for rising young professionals to connect with leaders of all ages.
