Registration is now open for CLC! Make your plans now to join us May 10-12, 2017, when the best and brightest, the movers and the shakers, the innovators and the advocates, of the United Way network gather in Orlando, Florida, for the 2017 United Way Community Leaders Conference (CLC). This annual gathering is the prime opportunity to collaborate with your United Way colleagues from around the globe, sharing key learnings, discovering best practices, celebrating successes and forging new collaborative relationships. And a special addition for 2017: the International 2-1-1 Leadership Summit will be held immediately before CLC on May 9.
This year, we encourage volunteer leaders (Board members, Campaign Chairs, Alexis de Tocqueville Cabinet members and more) to join our staff leadership at CLC. We are working in partnership with our network to develop learning sessions designed specifically to engage volunteer leaders through lunch on Thursday, May 11. More information on all our learning sessions will be provided in the coming weeks. To deliver quality learning sessions which drive this network-wide strategy, we invited United Ways to submit proposals which demonstrate how they are executing toward our strategic plan. With more than 200 proposals submitted, we have closed the RFP submission page and are beginning outreach to proposal submitters.
United Way has been changing lives and building strong communities for more than 125 years and, to continue this mission for many more years, we need to collaborate on innovative ways to offer outstanding individual experiences, to reinvigorate relationships with our corporate partners, to expand our network of transformational giving, and to work together as one network with unparalleled reach around the globe.
