Attendees will have the opportunity to choose one of five seminars at each of the four breakout session times. With topics ranging from internet marketing for nonprofits and fund development to business continuity and strategic planning, attendees can expect to receive information to help them improve their operations in seven core areas specifically geared toward no-profit organizations: Strategic Planning, Marketing, Leadership, Fund Development/Donor Relations, Governance, Technology, and Finance/Accounting/Risk Management.
â€œThe conference is an affordable, valuable, common-ground experience and relationship builder for nonprofit organizations,â€ explained Jody House, Troy Chamber vice president and NPN staff liaison. â€œProviding affordable training for nonprofit groups in these difficult economic times will always be at the top of the list of goals and objectives for the Non-Profit Network.â€
The day will begin with a continental breakfast and conference overview followed by two breakout sessions and a hot buffet lunch, featuring keynote speaker, First Gentleman, Dan Mulhern. Mr. Mulhern's topic will be "Vision on a Matchbook." After lunch, participants will enjoy two more breakout sessions.
â€œAttendees can also visit the expo tables providing additional information throughout the day,â€ added House. â€œRepresentatives from printing specialists to event planners, plus many others, will be on hand to discuss issues unique to, and of interest to, the nonprofit audience.â€
New this year, attendees have the opportunity to participate in Have Your Say, sponsored by The Center For Michigan. Have Your Say is an interactive program that allows participants to speak out about how nonprofit organizations can play an integral role in re-shaping Michigan's future. This session allows participants to take part in a solutions-oriented, facilitated dialogue and offer their ideas on what can be done to ensure a successful future for Michigan. These ideas will be part of a new common ground agenda that will guide the decisions of state and local leaders.
Cost for the event is $50 for Troy Chamber members and $95 for non-members.
