Yakima Convention Center



Conference highlights

During the course of the day, you will experience these conference elements:

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS. Akaya Windwood will kick off the day with a hands-on, inspiring session, “People Matter.” We will continue our tradition of a “lunch interlude” (very short lunch program) with Nancy Warner of IRIS speaking on “Think Like A Community.”

WORKSHOPS. 13 workshops from fundraising to risk leadership await. Learn from local and state experts and be ready to put these ideas in place as soon as you return home.

SPECIAL FEATURES. We will be creating a “Community Story Wall” over the course of the day, with the support of the IRIS team and Martha Bean. And stop by to see the latest nonprofit books at the Yakima Valley Libraries “Nonprofit Pop-Up Library.”

TABLE TALKS. You told us when you registered what is most on your mind. Join your peers for a conversation on that topic. (We’ll past the topics on this website the week before the Conference.)

EXHIBITORS. Get solutions from experts with fingers on the most current resources.
