The theme of this year's conference is "A Bridge to Better," which captures a common aspiration of the Massachusetts nonprofit sector and those who support it as we move forward together. The conference includes an opening keynote session and keynote panel focused on that theme, with speakers throughout the weeks who will share their efforts to bring about a better Commonwealth for all.
The workshops at the conference cover a variety of topics for every stage in a nonprofit career, from fundraising to strategies to address equity, diversity, and inclusion in a nonprofit organization. Attendees have access to over 30 hours of educational workshops! Workshop recordings and materials will be made available on each workshop session's page on the virtual event platform after their airing. Learn more about this year's incredible workshops here.
Enjoy a series of speakers discussing important topics in the nonprofit sector to launch the first three mornings of the conference. Our first and keynote speaker is Dr. David Campt of The Dialogue Company. Learn more about Dr. Campt here. Stay tuned for more announcements about this year's speakers!
