EPIP National Conference 2013
Our national conference brings together over 300 of philanthropy and the nonprofit sector's most talented and diverse emerging leaders to focus on how they can use their time, talent, and treasure to make the world a more just, equitable, and sustainable place. Our conference immediately precedes the Council on Foundations’ Annual Conference in Chicago.
The theme for this year's national conference is LEAD. We will expose conference participants to innovative ideas, provide stellar examples of emerging leaders, and create pathways to leadership. We expect our members to take ownership of their personal development so they can increase their impact on their organizations, the communities in which they live, and the world.Continue reading

Our theme this year: Lead.
EPIP is both a teaching and learning organization. We strive to improve the practice of philanthropy within our community and in the field at large.
To that end, we exist to make sure that every emerging foundation professional reaches his or her true potential as an independent leader, and as a steward of philanthropic resources.
We see EPIP members as change agents who are learning from preceding generations; who value the principles of professional accord and effectiveness; and who hope to make the world more just and equitable. Our members make the most of their opportunities and step into leadership moments all along their career paths. We are all leaders, even if we don’t know it. And we all have the potential to do good in the world.
Become a part of what we’re doing, and let us help you unlock your true leadership potential. Join us in Chicago and hone your leadership at the 2013 EPIP National Conference.
