Have you considered taking on a leadership role at a non-profit? The experience can be both personally and professionally rewarding, but knowing what to expect, and what will be expected of you, can help you choose the best path.

Join Sam Myers and other non-profit leaders in the immigration bar for a discussion on the pros and cons, ins and outs of non-profit leadership. You will learn:

  • What are some benefits of non-profit leadership?
  • What is the difference between non-profit leadership and other leadership opportunities?
  • How can non-profit leadership build a career and network?
  • What are some things to consider before diving in?

We look forward to hearing more about your professional goals and what you’re looking for in leadership opportunities at the roundtable.


This roundtable is available only to AILA members and not CLE eligible.
