AFP is proud to partner with Independent Sector—the leadership network for nonprofits, foundations, and corporations—to bring its 2014 National Conference to Seattle this November 16-18. Last year’s conference in New York gathered more than 1,200 nonprofit professionals, including more than 400 nonprofit chief executives.
At the 2014 National Conference in Seattle you’ll find illuminating plenary programs featuring the nonprofit and philanthropic sector’s biggest names, alongside breakout sessions zeroing in on the most complex questions of our day. With pre-conference sessions targeted to emerging leaders and policy pros, and a full conference roster of cutting-edge content for professionals and executives across the nonprofit and philanthropic community, the IS Conference will arm nonprofit leaders with the knowledge and connections they need to work toward the greater good in the Pacific Northwest, across the country and around the world.
We hope you’ll join us in November as we gather to inspire new ideas, examine ways to demonstrate greater impact, strengthen the charitable community by sharing our struggles and solutions, and create opportunity for new collaborations that improve the lives of the people we serve.
See you in November!
