Everything I Needed to Know…
But Nobody Told Me: 
A Retreat For New Foundation Staff  
February 8-10, 2015
Ardmore, Oklahoma
The retreat is a great way to make connections with local foundation staff, learn from their career ups and downs, and enjoy some quality time really reflecting on your job and how you can better serve your foundation!”

Foundation staff with up to two years of experience at a grantmaking organization are invited to participate in a retreat that pairs new and seasoned philanthropists in a small group and one-on-one learning environment. Held in an intimate setting, “Everything I Needed to Know-But Nobody Told Me” allows for the sharing of ideas, experiences, and candid dialogue while establishing relationships which will continue long after the program ends.

Our seasoned faculty include:
Amanda Cloud, Executive Director, The Simmons Foundation
Alana Hughes, Chief Operating Officer, Charles and Lynn Schusterman Foundation
Randy Macon, Executive Director, Communities Foundation of Oklahoma
Tom McGuire, Grant Manager, Kronkosky Charitable Foundation
Christopher Shaw, Executive Vice President, The George and Fay Young Foundation
Cindy Pladziewicz, President, Professional Development Perspectives
The retreat begins at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, February 8 and lasts until noon on Tuesday, February 10, 2014.
