Last Chance! Learn the Secrets Behind the Curtain at Some Supremely Successful Nonprofits
May 11—circle it on your calendars, folks. That's when the nonprofit sector's brightest minds will gather in Washington, D.C., for the second annual NonProfit PRO Leadership Conference. This year's theme? The Secrets Behind the Curtain.
We've lined up the leaders of some of today's most successful and innovative nonprofits for a day of high-level, proprietary insight into what makes their organizations tick. Speakers include, among others, the chief information officer at America's 10th-largest charity; the director of transparency at one of the sector's leading voices on the subject; a certified coach and consultant with a TEDx talk under her belt; the nonprofit branding expert who worked on the McGruff the Crime Dog marketing and promotional campaign; and the executive director of a D.C. nonprofit that expanded from a single chapter in 2007 to 11 chapters today.
Here's the lineup:
- Jay Ferro, chief information officer, American Cancer Society, delivering the keynote on the best practices for driving and sustaining change at a large organization undergoing major transformation, and how to create a culture of accountability and teamwork.
- Kelly Andreae, executive director, Back on My Feet D.C., discussing how nonprofits on a small budget can look and operate like the biggest, most successful organizations.
- Marvin Avilez, chief operating officer, HICCup, presenting on the unique collaborative model behind his organization, why nonprofits are focused on the wrong metrics, and how to manage to accountability.
- Tarsha Whitaker Calloway, executive director, office of corporate relations, Emory University, offering the seven best practices for cultivating, sustaining and optimizing corporate partnerships.
- Laia Grino, director of transparency, accountability and results, InterAction, discussing the transparency trends and pressures today's organizations face, and how nonprofits and NGOs can and should view transparency as an opportunity, not just a compliance requirement.
- Elizabeth McCourt, president, executive coach and consultant, McCourt Leadership Group, presenting on overcoming adversity and how resilience can be an asset in challenging work and leadership arenas.
- And more!
The best part? It's a single-day conference, open only to nonprofits. And it's small by design, dotted with built-in networking opportunities—breakfast, lunch, two breakout roundtable sessions and a cocktail Q&A—so you'll have plenty of chances to connect with your peers. And since it's in Washington, D.C. at the famed Intercontinental The Willard hotel, it's in the middle of the action for many nonprofit professionals.
The format has drawn rave reviews from attendees.
“The speakers were top-notch, both in their fields of expertise and in their ability to deliver an informative entertaining presentation," said Bunkie Righter, national sales director at GuideStar, after last year's Leadership Conference. "I learned from them. I also made some terrific connections with other nonprofit leaders and service providers during the intentional networking times built into the program.”
