It’s the one day a year everyone you need to be connecting with – organizations, business leaders, agencies, funders, and supporters - will all be in one place. You won’t want to miss out!


What’s in it for me?

Attendees will be inspired by nationally known speakers, Coach Ken Carter and Jan Masaoka, CEO of the California Association of Nonprofits. Workshops and panel discussions led by industry experts will offer new ideas on how to be more effective in your role as a nonprofit professional, board member or supporter. Networking opportunities throughout the day will enable you to connect with colleagues from all facets of the nonprofit community to strengthen existing relationships and explore opportunities for new partnerships.


What will they talk about?

Whether you need to learn more about using data, growth and strategic planning, forming strong partnerships, advocacy, measuring impact, managing projects or funding for sustainability, there’s a workshop for you. Facilitated panel discussions with bankers and funders will offer an open discussion forum on how working together can lead to bigger and better outcomes.
