United Way Community Leaders Conference

The UW Community Leaders Conference is under way right now in Nashville, TN.

Participants include leaders from the private sector, elected officials, other non-profit organizations, and of course local United Ways across America. The focus? On how organizations can work together to make change happen in communities through strengthening education, income and health.  An appropriate focus, yes? What we learn, earn, and how well we live are so completely intertwined.

A number of workshops and classes are being offered on topics such as "Talent and Leadership for Leading Community Change," and "Investing in Collaboratives to Achieve Greater Community Results".

This year is also the 125th anniversary of United Way, which began in Denver, Colorado, in 1887, right in our back yard.

VisionLink's own Joanne Wagner is exhibiting at Booth #1. If you are at the conference, be sure to visit Joanne and learn how VisionLink's Community Operating System (CommunityOS) is the ideal platform for collaboratively strong community building.
