On March 19, 2003, members of the Leadership Learning Community (LLC) and Northern California Grantmakers (NCG) came together to explore a mutual interest in leadership development. Participants were Foundation staff and trustees, staff of local leadership development programs, and a few independent professionals working in the field of leadership.
