About this Event
This year, we are bringing the Leader Summit to you! A network committee has put together a dynamic lineup in September for you to learn, build skills, and find joy in connecting with one another. We’ll provide hands-on tools for leadership development for chapters, national working groups and communities in the SFUSA network; deepen our commitment to and understanding of equity, inclusion and justice; and present sessions that are grounded in the needs of the Slow Food network.
We have four themes:
- Programming: sessions on the Ark of Taste, Snail of Approval, advocacy, and more.
- Board and leader engagement: tips and best practices for how to attract and retain fabulous and diverse leaders.
- Grassroots fundraising: from membership to grant writing, we’ll focus on how to raise money to support your amazing work.
- Public relations and communications: sessions on digital storytelling, crafting the Slow Food voice, and working with the media.
Each week will feature a mix of panels, interactive workshops and informal happy hours so we can raise a toast and get to know each other.
Once you are registered, you can access all sessions and build your own schedule.
