OMAHA, Neb. — More than 300 national and regional thought leaders, staff and volunteers from the nonprofit world will come together for the 2019 Nonprofit Summit of the Midlands, which will be hosted by the Nonprofit Association of the Midlands and D.A. Davidson on Thursday, Nov. 7, at the Embassy Suites Conference Center in La Vista, Nebraska. Registration for the Summit has opened, and early bird registration ends Oct. 1.
The keynote speakers for the 13th annual summit are Frances Kunreuther and Sean Thomas-Breitfeld, co-directors of the Building Movement Project, which assists nonprofits in building grassroots support for progressive social change. Building bridges that lead to policies and approaches that support equity, fairness and sustainability, the Building Movement Project helps nonprofits meet the needs of communities they serve.
The 2019 Nonprofit Summit of the Midlands also will feature breakout sessions, a Catalyst Award and workshops on a variety of topics that will benefit nonprofit leaders of any experience level, including fundraising, lobbying, community building, team development and strategic planning. NAM is currently accepting nominations for its Catalyst Award, which will recognize a leader or organization that has made an impact in the nonprofit community. The recipient will be announced during the summit luncheon.
"Nebraska has more nonprofits per 1,000 people than the United States overall, and the Nonprofit Summit of the Midlands is a great opportunity for nonprofits of all sizes and missions to connect and collaborate," said Anne Hindery, chief executive officer of NAM. "We look forward to sharing ideas, best practices and workshops that demonstrate how nonprofits in the region can fulfill their missions and approach key issues facing them now, and also in the future."
The Nonprofit Association of the Midlands (NAM) is a state association representing more than 650 nonprofit organizations in Nebraska and southwest Iowa. Registration is now available at nonprofitam.org/page/Summit2019.
