Nonprofits are consistently asked to do more, be more and change more. This can be a challenge, as the complicated issues that the sector addresses do not have quick and easy fixes. This year’s conference focuses on building the capacity of organizations to operate efficiently, effectively and strategically. Topics covered at the conference will equip organizations and individuals to think innovatively. It will also introduce new ideas and strategies for nonprofit leaders, staff, board members and volunteers.

Matthew Downey, Nonprofit Services Program Director at the Johnson Center for Philanthropy, will be this year’s Keynote Speaker. Matthew will share his insights on the evolution and complexity of the nonprofit sector. His talk will inspire organizations to become powerful forces for change in their communities.

There will be three break out sessions featuring workshops presented by regional noprofit experts. View workshop line up: https://www.glcyd.org/non-profits/upnpoc/nonprofit-conference-workshops/
