What do Isadora Duncan, Steve Jobs, Maya Angelou and Ansel Adams have in common?
They were all hall of fame level game-changers and each one called the San Francisco Bay Area home.
This year we've embraced GameChangers as the theme for the 2012 IS Annual Conference and are thrilled to call the Hilton San Francisco Union Square our home for Veterans Day weekend, November 11 & 12.
We are putting together a slate of 25 breakout and 4 plenary sessions that are inspired by GameChanging people, events, and ideas that can ignite new thinking about who we are, how we lead, and what it will take to shape a robust future for the charitable sector and the communities we serve.
Arianna Huffington is the featured presenter in the first plenary session, GAME ON: Reality after the Rhetoric. The Huffington Post Media Group editor-in-chief and nationally syndicated columnist will discuss what lies ahead for America as the post-election dust settles. We'll provide regular updates on this blog as we confirm additional sessions and speakers.
So, mark your calendar and register today for the 2012 IS conference. You don't have to be the mother of modern dance, a software kingpin, a highly acclaimed American poet, or someone who took photography into a totally new 'zone' to attend. Everyone is welcome.
