Registration is closed

Edmonton Area Executive Directors, join your peers in a casual atmosphere where leaders can connect, learn, and break down those pesky silos that persist in the sector.

Wine & Wisdom is your chance to network with fellow Executive Directors & CEOs and to exchange insight and stories about your experiences in the nonprofit sector. Wine & Wisdom is built on the belief that regular networking is essential to creating a strong non-profit sector and affecting change in our communities.

Each ED Networking Night sees different local Executive Directors or CEOs take the stage to lead our topic of discussion. It keeps the hosts fresh, the perspectives fresher, and gives everybody an opportunity to take charge of the evening!

Don't miss this opportunity to join your peers in a comfortable atmosphere and pick their brains on the issues leaders face in the non-profit sector! 

The Discussion

The topic at hand for June's edition is Board Relationships. How does one maintain a positive and productive relationship with their board through thick and thin?

"People talk about bike riding when they want to remind us that some things, once learned, are not forgotten. What they don't mention is how we learned. No one learns to ride a bike from a book, or even a video. You learn by doing it. Actually, by not doing it. You learn by doing it wrong, by falling off, by getting back on, by doing it again."
