National Nonprofit Leadership Conference recap



From April 20-22, more than 300 nonprofit leaders from over 20 states across the country convened together to motivate and inspire their leadership and accomplish more, together. 

Exhibitors, speakers, and attendees interacted & networked over meals and ice breakers, including searching for their mystery match from information shared on sticky notes.

Nonprofit staff, board members, Executive Directors, fundraisers and project managers, filled the rooms of over 30 content-packed sessions and keynotes focused on fundraising, marketing and communications, and board governance.

"Thank you so much for the National Nonprofit Leadership Conference... our Director of Operations attended and the information presented will help our organization tremendously."
- Calmra, Inc.

Sector trailblazers shared strategies to solve data reporting challenges, communication frustrations, and fundraising woes. 

"End the overhead myth- the false conception that financial ratios are sole indicators of nonprofit performance." - Jacob Harold, Guidestar


"Nonprofits  can restore confidence by considering a massive collaboration to educate the public and serve as a conscience on major issues." - Stacy Palmer, Editor, Chronicle of Philanthropy

"See leadership in it's greatest context. This is your passion, your calling. Use your vision to make a case for fundraising. Your calling allows you to lead & that is why you can fundraise with confidence." - Bill Stanczykiewicz, Indiana University Lilly Fund Raising School
