Nominations open for the 2019 Bryan Bell Metropolitan Leadership Forum


Nominations are officially open for the 2019 Bryan Bell Metropolitan Leadership Forum.  The process will conducted entirely through online nominations again this year.  Nominations will close on Friday, July 26, though we encourage people to submit well ahead of the deadline.  As always, self-nominations are welcome.  We hope you will consider emerging leaders among your networks and forward this information to them.

Two things of note for 2019:  first, due to ever-increasing costs, plus an analysis of what other leadership trainings around the city are charging, we are reluctantly increasing the participant fee to $400 for this year.  Partial scholarships may be available.  And, we are offering one full scholarship to an emerging leader in the nonprofit sector, in honor of 2017 BBMLF graduate Sharree Walls, whose life was tragically cut short in the post-Endymion parade accident.  Applicants for the scholarship should complete the nomination form, and send a separate cover letter to

Thanks, and we look forward to hearing from the best and brightest of your many contacts,
