Edison Hosts Annual Leadership Conference

Presenter Marc Smiley
Edison Community College’s Mosaic of Community Leadership will feature speaker Marc Smiley of Solid Ground Consulting at its 12th annual conference on Wednesday, May 20, from 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. in the Robinson Theater of the Piqua campus. The annual conference brings together executive directors, board members, staff and volunteers to explore in depth topics related to not-for-profit management.

This one-day conference will aim toward bringing awareness to any organization’s planning process. This involves engaging stakeholders, clarifying your role in the community and creating a rationale for saying no to misaligned opportunities while empowering staff.

Smiley, who specializes in organizational development, strategic planning, and fundraising, will serve as the event’s presenter. He has worked extensively with not-for-profit and public organizations nationally that focus on a range of issues, including land and river conservation, affordable housing, historic preservation, and human services.

Boasting an impressive professional background, Marc has presented on strategic planning at dozens of conferences, and he teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in planning and effective governance as an adjunct professor for the Institute for Nonprofit Management at Portland State University.
This year’s annual conference is made possible through the generous support of our Title Sponsor, The Duke Foundation and our session sponsor, The Troy Foundation.

Registration for the event is preferred by Friday, May 15 to ensure a seat. The cost to attend the event is $50 per person with a discounted rate of $45 each for groups of three or more attendees. For more information or to register, contact Julie Slattery at
