2018-19 Glass Leadership Institute Applications Available Beginning August 2018

January 28, 2018 @ 6:00 pm

Interested 20, 30 and 40 somethings looking for a provocative, thoughtful, engaging opportunity to meet similarly situated advocates and future ADL leaders should consider the upcoming Glass Leadership Institute. Current co-chairs are Joel Portman and Morgan Miransky.

What is the Glass Leadership Institute?

The Glass Leadership Institute was initiated in St. Louis in 1999 to develop the next generation of ADL advocates.  The goal is to provide broad exposure to ADL programs and issues in the hope that participants will choose future avenues of involvement.  The Institute is made possible by a generous grant from the Glass Family from Atlanta and the Staenberg Family Foundation in St. Louis.  Meetings will be monthly, mostly in the evenings, between October 2018 and June, 2019.

What is the commitment to participate?

Participants have been nominated, self-nominated, or invited by active ADL and Glass leaders and selected because of potential leadership qualities and commitment to the ADL mission.  It is our hope that those who choose to participate will take their involvement seriously. Attendance at the monthly sessions and at the National Leadership Conference is important to gain the full experience.  There will be discussion about fundraising and we will be asking GLI classes to consider financial support of the agency.  Participants will also be invited to attend any of a number of ADL sponsored events during the year, including Regional Advisory Board, Committee meetings, and special events. Our goal is create an interactive experience — participation is limited to 18 people per cohort.  You do not have to be Jewish to participate in the Glass program.

What is the National Leadership Conference?

The Shana Amy Glass National Leadership Conference is held annually in Washington, DC, scheduled for Spring 2019.  ADL brings together top lay leaders and Glass Institute members from around the country to discuss issues and trends.  Key government and international officials present, legislative policy briefings are available as well as proactive lobbying efforts on important legislative initiatives relevant to the ADL agenda. ADL and the Staenberg Fellowship underwrites registration hotel and meals; participants need to make their own travel arrangements.  More information to follow.
