The Emerging Development Professionals Leadership Circle is a monthly peer group meeting of new development professionals (0-3 years of experience) from small nonprofit organizations to share challenges and strategies for personal and organizational success. In an informal, roundtable format, you will have an opportunity to share your insights, gain practical solutions and alleviate any on-the-job isolation or stress that you might experience.

The peer circle will gather monthly at World Affairs Center in San Francisco on 5 Fridays from 9:30-11:00am, beginning on February 28. Dates are as follows: March 27, April 24, May 29,  June 26. Participants must register before February 18. The $125 fee covers the full cost of the series. To maximize benefit, we require attendance for the entire series in order to create an effective learning cohort.
