On September 19th, GLBT Community Center Executive Directors and Board Members from across the United States and Canada are headed to Garden City as The Long Island GLBT Community Center will host the 7th Annual CenterLink Executive Director and Board Leadership summit.
CenterLink, the national organization representing over 200 GLBT Community Centers in the United States, coordinates the conference each year, sharing strategies and building the GLBT Center movement. Summit attendees will participate in a variety of workshops, keynotes, and discussions on topics including fundraising, operations, program development, and more.
The summit brings together a diverse group of GLBT centers, which range from large multi-service organizations to all-volunteer community initiatives. The 2013 summit also marks the first time the gathering will take place in a suburban region.
“People often think of GLBT Community Centers as urban organizations, but critical and groundbreaking work is being done in suburban and rural regions throughout the United States,” said David Kilmnick, CEO of The Long Island GLBT Services Network and Board Co-Chair of CenterLink. “We are thrilled to show off the great things happening in Long Island’s GLBT Community to our partners across the country.”
