NCFP will live stream a session from the 2019 National Forum on Family Philanthropy in Chicago, IL. From the comfort of your home or office—and with a computer or electronic device—you can listen and view the event as it happens live.

Being the non-family staff leader of a multi-generational family foundation is a privilege and honor. The path to engaging and furthering a family’s philanthropy is a special experience—but it can also be tough. This special conversation for CEOs, board members, and donors will feature a discussion between two highly respected CEOs in the process of exiting their long-time roles alongside two new CEOs just entering this role.
