Central Washington Conference for the Greater Good
Apr. 24, Yakima Convention Center

Central Washington is home to diverse human histories, ranging from people native to the land to those who’ve traveled from far and near. This year, the conference will focus on stories – and how they forge meaningful relationships and social change.

There are
workshops covering a wide range of topics; such as fundraising “asks,” storytelling through data, building strong collaborations, self-care, decision-making from a position of privilege, risk assessment, and structuring successful food programs. The keynote speaker is Akaya Windwood, an internationally recognized leader known for elevating the effectiveness of leadership and collaboration in the social sector.

Early bird registration ends on Mar. 21.
Washington Nonprofits members get an additional discount.

Washington State Nonprofit Conference
May 20-21, Meydenbauer Center

This is the 25th anniversary of the largest annual statewide gathering for members of the nonprofit community. Take a day away from your desk to see your challenges from another perspective, meet nonprofit leaders from across the state, and visualize how you can lead the change for a better sector. Then, come back to your desk recharged, revitalized, and fired up.
