NextGen Breakfast 2014: Notes from the Event Chair

By Renee Dubois YNPN Atlanta Chair-Elect & Chair of 2014 NextGen Breakfast Committee

Next_Gen_2014_Logo.pngYou may be asking yourself, why should I buy a ticket to the YNPN Atlanta’s NextGen Breakfast?  Maybe it’s for a $50 ticket, you get to enjoy the fabulous skyline views of the downtown Atlanta, at the prestigious Commerce Club.  Or is it having breakfast and an intimate conversation with a dynamic Atlanta Rockstar Leader?  Perhaps it’s helping fund YNPN Atlanta’s programs for members: even supporting members and providing them with a free mentorship program, very affordable professional development, and continuous encouragement as they work toward actionable, local change in the Metro Atlanta community.

Lisa_Borders_headshot.jpgThis year’s keynote speaker is Lisa Borders, Chair of the Coca-Cola Foundation. She will lead the charge of this year’s theme, “Diversity in Leadership.”  The NextGen Committee has worked extremely hard to bring a diverse group of leaders, from both the Nonprofit and Corporate Relations world.  These amazing leaders will serve as your table hosts.  These individuals are heavily involved with community leadership, nonprofit service, and with bringing change to Metro Atlanta.

So join us, listen, and learn from the best in Atlanta and become the leader and change that you want to see in the community!
