Fanning to host virtual community leadership conference Feb. 18

A University of Georgia virtual leadership conference next month will bring together community leaders from all walks of life to share ideas and insights for strengthening communities, organizations and individuals to act upon shared goals and challenges.

The UGA J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development will host the sixth annual Community Leadership Conference on Feb. 18.

With a theme of “Leading in Unprecedented Times,” this year’s conference will take place virtually and is free to attend.

Sessions will cover topics such as leading difficult conversations in your community; diversity, equity and inclusion; and leadership lessons learned during the pandemic. In addition, Fanning faculty will lead a morning keynote address focused on tips and strategies for leading in unprecedented times.

Since 2016, the Community Leadership Conference has brought together a wide array of community leadership experts including leadership program coordinators, chamber of commerce leaders, and nonprofit executives and board members to share insights and perspectives on how to advance best practices in community, nonprofit and youth leadership development.

Also during the 2021 virtual Community Leadership Conference, participants can learn more about Fanning Institute programming and the institute will present its 2021 Innovations in Community Leadership Award.
