The Paramount Center hosted over a sold-out crowd of grantmakers and foundation leaders at AGM's 45th Annual Meeting last Wednesday. Jim Canales, Barr Foundation President, kicked-off the meeting with a keynote address on the culture of philanthropy and rethinking our default settings. This led to a lively panel discussion of philanthropy's next chapter moderated by Cynthia Parker, Interaction Institute for Social Change.   

During AGM's Business Meeting, Executive Director, Jeff Poulos, recognized and thanked the out-going board members: Craig Dutra and Lois Smith for their service to the board. Jeff also welcomed new directors to the AGM board elected for a 3-year term:

After a catered lunch, grantmakers and colleagues were offered a tour of the newly restored grand Paramount Center.
