Jill Robinson, director of executive learning and marketing for the Center for Executive Education at Belmont, has been named the 2013 Young Leader of the Year by Young Leaders Council.
Young Leaders Council (YLC) is a Nashville-based nonprofit organization that trains more than 2,000 men and women to effectively participate on the boards of nonprofit agencies. The Young Leader of the Year award is presented annually to a graduate of the YLC training program from the past 28 years who has made significant contributions to the fulfillment of the YLC mission, as well as demonstrated a commitment to ongoing community service and board leadership to local nonprofit organizations.
In addition to her role at the Center for Executive Education at Belmont University supplying the keynote speakers for the past six YLC Fall Leadership Luncheons, Robinson was key to the expansion of the YLC nonprofit board training program into Williamson County in 2013 due to the partnership created with Williamson County Young Professionals. A graduate of YLC Class 26, she currently serves as the chair of the YLC board of directors and is a member of the advisory boards for Tennessee Repertory Theatre and OZ Nashville, a contemporary art space and event venue. She is active in both the Williamson County and Nashville Chambers of Commerce, including serving on the Nashville Chamber’s Midtown Leadership Team and previously as chair for YP Nashville, which connects young professionals to networking, professional development and community involvement.
