The Center for Nonprofit Leadership at Drury University is looking for ideas and proposals for sessions at the 2017 Nonprofit Communication Conference, October 6 at the Oasis Hotel & Convention Center.
We encourage presenters to incorporate this year's theme (Back to Basics) into their presentations, reminding participants not to lose sight of important areas of their work. As nonprofits evolve, there can be a tendency to focus too much on complicated, technical aspects of the operation and stray from the basics that initially inspired our work and that helped launch our organizations.
We are looking for thought leaders who can provide timely, meaningful and challenging content to engage our conferences more than 275 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 60-75 minutes long.
Our goal is to provide balanced sessions that meet the variety of skill levels and interest levels of the conference audience, presented by speakers who represent the passion and diversity of the nonprofit industry.
