Each year, The NonProfit Times selects its NPT Power & Influence Top 50. In fact, 2016 marks the 19th annual celebration of the sector’s top executives and strategists – leaders who have had an impact during the previous 12 months.
This year’s honorees were selected from a group of roughly 300 top executives, and we at Abila are beyond excited that executives representing nine of our client organizations have earned the distinction! Please join me in recognizing:
- Michael Brown, Co-Founder and CEO, City Year
- Elizabeth Darling, CEO and President, OneStar Foundation
- Jonathan Greenblatt, National Director and CEO, Anti-Defamation League
- Eileen R. Heisman, President and CEO, National Philanthropic Trust
- Dara Richardson-Heron, M.D., CEO, YWCA USA
- Douglas Rutzen, President and CEO, International Center for Not-for-Profit Law
- Anne Wallestad, President and CEO, BoardSource
- Amy Sample Ward, CEO, Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN)
- John H. Graham IV, President and CEO, ASAE/The Center for Association Leadership
I love what my friend Paul Clolery had to say in his announcement – “If you ask nonprofit executives the one thing about which they feel certain during 2016, the answer surely would be uncertainty … Managing a nonprofit, let alone innovating, is a tall order.”
Indeed, it’s a demanding time to be leading and innovating in the nonprofit space. And, that’s all the more reason we at Abila are genuinely honored to work with these Top Power and Influence recipients and their organizations in their efforts to better our world!
I look forward to congratulating our clients and all the other winners in person, this Thursday at the annual NPT Power & Influence Top 50 Gala at The National Press Club.
