Madison Nonprofit Day Conference

The 2014 Madison Nonprofit Day Conference will be held on Thursday, 2 October 2014. We call the Conference the region's best opportunity to receive inspiring, engaging, and comprehehnsive training from some of the area's top nonprofit professionals and experts.

The Conference is dedicated to providing engaging education, networking, and skills-building opportunities for nonprofit professionals and community leaders. We place an emphasis on selecting workshops and presentations that are informative, relevant, provoke discussion, provide opportunities for participant engagement, and encourage opportunities for user replication.

Keynote: Are You Planning for Vibrancy?

Operational ruts can cause organizational limps. Too many organizations are limping— from boards and budgets, to fundraising and frustrations, these operational necessities can erode enthusiasm for critical community missions. Brent will challenge you to look critically toward ways of leading your organization into greater vibrancy and sustainability.
