Sundance | November 2-5, 2014
This Chief Executive Program community will start building their action plans for the future as a community of Fellows. At Sundance they will build on all the ideas they have explored, all the conversations with colleagues, all the progress they have made in their organizations and any collaborations with fellow executives. Leaders will come together to ask, “What is possible?” and generate ideas for moving forward against the challenges they now see as most pressing for the field.
The Chief Executive Program: Community and Culture
This 1-year program serves an international group of 50 outstanding CEOs whose organizations work closely with communities on creative placemaking initiatives. Throughout the program, NAS helps leaders work individually and in groups to broaden their thinking about their environments and how to lead change. We support their efforts to bring new ideas to their organizations and communities. By the end of the experience, participants will have the ideas, tools and connections to collectively strengthen the cultural sector. They will join their colleagues from the first and second cohorts of The Chief Executive Program as a network of leaders and organizations positioned to introduce field-level change. Learn more »
