It’s been a standout season for Web of Change! Not only did we elect three new members to our board of directors, hire a year-round managing director and launch our first community-driven, mini-conference in LA. We brought more people from more walks of life to Web of Change than ever before. So, our enthusiasm for 2015 is at an all-time high! Here’s what’s in store for Web of Change this year.
This November, Web of Change alumni will elect three new members to refresh our dynamite Board of Directors. Have you been touched by the magic of Web of Change in the past? Want to play a key role in shaping its future? This is your invitation to run for a seat on the board. It’s a unique opportunity open to all alumni. We hope you’ll take a few minutes to consider the fit.
For many first-time conference attendees, making the long journey to Web of Change on Cortes Island is a leap of faith. Maureen McGregor was one of 59 change makers who experienced Web of Change for the first time earlier this month.
Despite high expectations, the dialogue, debate and strategies shared amongst attendees did not disappoint.
I had never participated in a space where there was absolutely no limitation to what could be achieved. We were free to reimage conventional wisdom, to challenge one another, and to dig deep to find innovative ideas. That alone makes Web of Change an important space for the progressive movement.
Derek Johnson wasn’t sure what to expect when he arrived at the Hollyhock Retreat Centre for his first Web of Change conference. “I was out of my comfort zone. I had recently shifted from policy work to a campaign-focused role.” The Executive Director of Global Zero was attending the event based on the glowing recommendations of a couple of colleagues.
