Generating ideas, connections, and action

New York

Currently, the New York metro area learning circle identifies itself as more of a loose network of approximately fifty people interested in leadership programs for many different reasons than a learning circle that is working on a single project.

Meetings are typically organized by a planning committee whose membership changes with each new meeting. The planning committee for the next meeting is being chaired by Iris Morales, Fund for the City of New York. At the next meeting, the group will be exploring several alumni issues in greater depth, following up on an earlier theme.


The group met on January 24, 2002 to discuss building and sustaining alumni networks. The planning committee for this meeting, chaired by Luis Alvarea (LA & Associates), included Marion Krauskopf (Ford Foundation), Alvin Starks (Open Society Institute); Surita Sandosham (Rockefeller Foundation), Arva Rice, (Public Allies).

The New York Metro Area Learning Circle hosted its first luncheon on July 27, 2001. Twenty-two leadership funders, program directors and scholars explored their interest in collaboration and collective learning.
