When most nonprofit leaders first entered the field, their motivation was to create a better world for others. So now, with funding so scarce, being forced to choose between cuts in programs and employees feels like torture. How do you make such decisions? And how do you live with yourself afterwards?
In this session, two highly respected, veteran nonprofit leaders (Charlie Pillsbury and Chet Brodnicki) will share their experiences of tough times: how they made the required decisions; how they themselves survived intact; and what the perspective of years has taught them about living through difficult times.
CHET BRODNICKI, MSW, LCSW, is best known in New Haven for his 20+ years as executive director of Clifford Beers Clinic. More recently, Chet has served as interim executive director or CEO for Boys and Girls Village of Milford; Community Mediation, Inc.; and Family Life Education of Hartford. In addition, Chet volunteers as a reading tutor for first graders in a Hartford public school.
After twenty years as executive director of Community Mediation, Inc., in New Haven, CHARLIE PILLSBURY, JD, recently began serving as the first volunteer executive director of Mediators Beyond Borders (www.mediatorsbeyondborders.com). In addition, Charlie was a founding board member of the National Association for Community Mediation and served as co-chair of its board from 1991-2001. Before joining Community Mediation, Charlie practiced law for 14 years in the New Haven area.
