Addressing the Leadership Crisis




DALLAS, -- A Boy Scouts of America executive will join representatives from more than 100 of the nation's leading social justice and membership organizations for Who's Got Next?: A Call for Change in the Nonprofit Sector. The session will focus on the leadership crisis facing nonprofits.


As part of the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation's Annual Legislative Conference, Willie Iles, director of Government and Community Relations for the Boy Scouts of America, will be joined by the CEOs of the National Urban League, National Human Services Assembly, and Girls Inc. The panel will focus on topics that include leadership, diversity in nonprofits, and strategies for recruiting and retaining diverse talent.


"The Boy Scouts of America national leadership realizes its staff and volunteers must reflect the demographics of America in order for us to grow the next 100 years as one of the largest child advocacy organizations," Mr. Iles said.
