Silicon Valley (SV)

Healthcare Leaders CEO Group

2nd Tuesday of the month from | 8:30 – 11:30 am  | Mountain View, CA

Upcoming Meeting

February 14, 2023

Discussion Topic:

What Can Healthcare Leaders Learn
from the Nonprofit World?

Dave Berkus, last month’s Featured Speaker, is best known for making hundreds of early-stage investments. However, he’s also served on numerous nonprofit boards, including as a longtime Trustee of Occidental College. So, it wasn’t entirely surprising that his latest “Berkonomics Business Insight” lent the nonprofit triplet of “Time, Talent and Treasure” to the business world.

After all, in my experience, the majority of nonprofit board members contribute their business, finance and development savvy, (honed in the hard-headed world of business) to warm-hearted businesses that are making the world a better place.

During our Members’ Discussion we’ll look to hear some of the valuable lessons you’ve learned, while chairing or serving on nonprofit boards, especially lessons that you’ve been able to apply in either the nonprofit or for-profit world of business. We’ll also look to hear and discuss any community or business issues that are keeping you up nights.

Following the break, Cathy Conway, CEO of Hospice of Santa Cruz County, will share The Journey she and her Board undertook to ensure the HSCC name reflects their true mission, vision, values – and growth potential, in light of new market entrants.

Even while earning her daily bread in the for-profit sector, Cathy Conway began volunteering at a residential hospice in San Francisco, where she was inspired to get a Master’s in Nonprofit Management and take her first steps in the nonprofit world – first as Director of Development for the Santa Cruz AIDS Project, then as the Executive Director of the Santa Cruz County Symphony. In 2004, she joined Hospice of Santa Cruz County and, through a progression of five key positions, became CEO in June 2020.

RSVP today to expand your nonprofit – and for-profit vistas.
