Join your non-family staff peers at the Forum to answer the key question: what is keeping you up at night? Are you navigating major challenges, managing family transitions and culture, or are you strategizing about your professional goals and the vision of your foundation’s future? This peer led discussion, guided by your current chair Kelly Chopus and upcoming co-chair Kim Wright, is designed for senior level non-family staff members to convene, get to know one another, and discuss the unique challenges, complications, and inherent in this role.
