Local Boys & Girls Club CEO Selected to Participate in Inaugural Leadership Summit

Erin Antrim, CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme, is one of just 60 senior leaders from the Boys & Girls Club Movement who have been selected to participate in a new year-long leadership development program called the Leadership Summit. The program began in May 2017 and includes a collaborative educational experience designed by Harvard Business School Executive Education and Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA).

“I am honored to have been chosen as an inaugural participant in the BGCA Leadership Summit Program, and to have an opportunity to join my colleagues at Harvard Business School,” said Erin Antrim, CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Oxnard and Port Hueneme. “This is a rare opportunity to learn from an establishment with such a legacy of prestige and success, alongside other leaders with a shared mission, and to use what I have learned to deepen my impact locally and nationally.”

To drive transformational impact nationally and on a local level, BGCA teamed up with the preeminent leadership development institution in the world, Harvard Business School. Together, the organizations established a leadership development experience designed to supercharge the capabilities of local CEOs, raise the organization’s collective leadership abilities and solve the most pressing challenges facing Clubs.

The extremely selective program is designed for high performing Boys & Girls Club organizations. Participants will undergo an intense experience designed to solve organization-wide challenges and to help each local organization reach its unique goals. After the session, the group will work together to implement strategies discussed.

The Harvard Business School component will take place on its campus in June 2017.
