NCASA Executive Director Participates In New Strategies Forum

On Feb. 25-28, NCASA Executive Director Katherine Joyce (pictured front and center) joined 50 other non-profit executives from around the country participating in the New Strategies Forum at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business. These executives were not only the largest group to graduate from the program, but also the 20th group since the start of the program in 2011. In addition to focusing on a variety of revenue generating topics, the forum addressed what organizations can do to prepare themselves for the changes in the tax code and cuts in federal spending. Special guest speaker Dan Glickman, Executive Director of the Aspen Institute and former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, provided his perspective at the closing dinner event.  Ms. Joyce participated in the forum based on her dual role as Executive Director of the N.C. Alliance for School Leadership Development (NCASLD), a 501c3 non-profit organization foused on professional development for North Carolina school leaders. NCASLD, launched in 2014 to enhance the capacity of school leadership in the state, contracts with NCASA for oversight and administration as well as program delivery that is provided by NCASA’s core affiliates – the N.C. School Superintendents’ Association and the N.C. Principals and Assistant Principals’ Association. Ms. Joyce’s participation in the New Strategies Forum was sponsored by the American Express Foundation, which also has provided grant funding to NCASLD for principal professional development initiatives.
