Leadership and advocacy

A newsletter from breast cancer deadline 2020 has popped into my inbox and I thought that I would share what looks like an amazing event.  Leadership is what is needed in breast cancer advocacy.  I don’t know if anyone can go, but if you can do tell me what it was like.  It takes place in Washington DC 4 – 6 May 2013.

Building Leaders at the Inaugural Advocate Leadership Summit – Join Us!

In 2013, our Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® efforts are focused on building leadership at all levels. To strengthen our grassroots leadership across the country, we will convene a completely unique summit of leaders this year. Join us at the Inaugural Advocate Leadership Summit in Washington DC, May 4-6, 2013. This meeting will provide attendees with life-long leadership skills and just-in-time strategies as well as Big Ideas and advanced learning. Leaders also will experience small group interactions with researchers and thought leaders.
Attendance will be capped at 250. Registration for the Summit is open to all advocates who commit to playing a leadership role and raising $1,000 or more in support of the research and mobilization work of Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®. There are no additional registration fees for the summit, and the fund raising contribution entitles the participant to three nights of shared lodging at the Summit hotel.
A deadline changes everything.
Each Advocate who attends will be taking the next big leap forward by becoming committed as an NBCC Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® leader! The deadline truly does change everything. It must for us to succeed.
We need advocates to help to grow our base of support to include everyone who cares about ending breast cancer. By getting more and more members of your community behind our effort through your leadership and fundraising efforts, we will be able to continue our work on the Artemis Projects® to develop a breast cancer vaccine and other research collaborations on the causes and prevention of metastasis, and our unparalleled advocate education and training programs.
We need you to commit NOW to joining us for this historic event―space is limited!
