Conference Program Committee

Our conference would not be a successful event without the efforts and contributions of our Conference Program Committee. These individuals meet throughout the months leading up to the conference to plan out concurrent sessions and other programming. The session “Learning from Each Other, A Conversation between Funders and Nonprofits” was coordinated by our Committee to meet a need they found in our session planning.
