Whether you are large or small, national or local, an association, museum, school or a charity, the Nonprofit Communication Conference will help bring to light the skills and knowledge you need to get you and your organization on point.
Registration is now open for the 2014 Nonprofit Communication Conference. The registration cost is $40.
The Center for Nonprofit Communication at Drury University is looking for ideas and proposals for sessions at the 2014 Nonprofit Communication Conference, October 16 at Drury University.
We are looking for thought leaders who can provide timely, meaningful and challenging content to engage our conference's more than 225 attendees in critical thinking and discussion.
Sessions should cover issues, projects, and trends in the nonprofit industry, and should not be a sales pitch to promote the services or products of individual companies. We prefer experienced speakers, although we are open to novice presenters who pair up with a colleague.
Sessions are 75 or 90 minutes long.
If selected as a presenter at the 2014 Nonprofit Communication Conference, you will have the opportunity to network with hundreds of industry professionals, make new contacts, and share your expertise with colleagues. If you have a book, product, or service, we will allow you to promote it. However, this must not be the focus of your presentation.
Speakers receive free admission and will be given a stipend, but no other costs will be reimbursed. Speakers will be required to sign an agreement prior to the conference.
Over the past few years, the nonprofit sector has exploded in growth. According to a recent study, there are over 1,550 nonprofit organizations within Springfield city limits! One of the key challenges for these groups is to create clear, compelling messages that resonate with the community. With limited money and resources, how can they reach the right people? How can they compete?
The 2014 Nonprofit Communication Conference will focus on topics that inspire and challenge leaders and staff, and help organizations connect and engage donors, volunteers, and community partners.
As a conference sponsor, your company will be in front of organizational and community leaders and decision makers. Not only will they discover more about your services, but will also learn about your commitment to making southwest Missouri a better place to live.
The 2012 and 2013 events were sold out, with more than 225 attendees representing over 100 organizations from 7 states in the Midwest. The 2014 conference is sure to once again draw a great crowd.
