Community Leadership Conference

Creating a culture of strong, action-oriented leadership inspires positive change in communities. Each year, the Community Leadership Conference brings those individuals at the forefront of developing that culture in their communities together to share best practices and learn about recent trends and innovations that they can take back to their communities and organizations to re-energize leadership programs.

When selecting the award recipient, several criteria, including need, creativity, implementation, and impact, are taken into account. Granting this award showcases these innovations and the dedicated leaders who strive to make their communities stronger.

Each year, the Fanning Institute presents the Innovations in Community Leadership Award during the Community Leadership Conference.
