Presenter or Panelist
Nonprofit New York holds an Annual Conference that takes place during the fall. During this event, presenters will be able to engage with an audience of over 300 individuals who work in the New York nonprofit field. You will be able to share your expertise on a topic as either a panelist or a solo presenter during one of our sessions. The conference sessions usually run from 45 to 90 minutes.
