The third annual Global Board Leaders Summit the day after Freedom Dinner 2017 took place Thursday, November 9, 2017, from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., at the Crowne Plaza Times Square hotel. This summit was for all active board members of Atlas Network partner organizations.* 

This Global Board Leaders Summit was designed to:

  • Energize your board leaders to help take your organization to the next level in fundraising, strategic planning, and governance
  • Encourage the exchange of ideas, tips and best practices for a high-functioning board
  • Establish new friendships among the global network to facilitate year-round networking and communication among like-minded board members

The 2017 Summit was facilitated by international consultant and board facilitator Mina Merkel.

Atlas Network has a 36-year history convening think tank leaders and staff proving over and over again the power of the network to achieve improvements in the effectiveness of pro-liberty organizations. Beginning in 2015, we are now giving board members of pro-liberty organizations in our network that same opportunity because we know how much you stand to benefit from engaging energetically with a diverse group of your peers, people who know exactly the challenges and opportunities you face.
