CommUNITY Out of Chaos

In the midst of the noise and chaos, the day-to-day work still has to be done. People are depending on health clinics, after school opportunities and job training programs regardless of the political climate.  Nonprofit executives and board members are straddling how to meet current needs and prepare for what might happen given the current environment.

Power in Numbers

The 501(c)onference featured impassioned dialogue addressing the ways nonprofits can tackle these challenges. The event provided an opportunity to share success stories, new approaches to new hazards, and ways to draw strength from diverse viewpoints. Uniting around common goals, the object was to transform dialogue into meaningful change.

From big picture best practices to concrete examples, the 501(c)onference is an inspiring event – revealing and sharing the tools nonprofits need to put strategy into action and accelerate impact.
