Keynote Speaker

Ed O'Malley

Ed O'MalleyAlthough Ed O’Malley’s job title of president and CEO may seem traditional, his leadership tactics are far from the norm, especially when it comes to civic leadership. He sees civic leadership as more than ‘protecting your turf’ but as a sharing responsibility that is needed for the common good. O’Malley and his coauthor David D. Chrislip believe in recreating civic leadership with the goal of transforming civic culture. To O’Malley, leadership is more than a job title or a personality trait but an opportunity. O’Malley will present the opportunities available through engaging in recreating civic leadership. Learn more about O'Malley.

All seminar attendees will receive a personal copy of O'Malley's new book For the Common Good: Redefining Civic Leadership. Read more about the book.
