The 2018 Nonprofit Leadership Conference brought together industry leaders for one of the largest gatherings of nonprofit professionals in the state. This year, we focused on Building a Strong Foundation, ensuring that every aspect of our work is supported by a healthy organization and inspired by our mission. We heard from industry experts on meaningful topics and issues facing all types of organizations. Attendees engaged with a diverse group of peers from a variety of nonprofits including foundations, charities, faith-based, healthcare, education, museums, associations, and government agencies.
