The 2010 Nonprofit Technology conference that took place recently in Atlanta, Georgia was a great success. Around 1450 nonprofit technocrats attended the conference and helped in making it one of the best conferences ever held in the history of NTCs. Though the next NTC is scheduled for March 17-19 next year, there are several other conferences that will take place this year.
The first is the AICPA National not-for-profit Industry Conference that is to take place in June 2010 at Marriott Wardman Park, Washington DC. The conference will address the complexities and challenges faced by the nonprofit community, particularly in this highly competitive world. The speakers at the conference will also talk about the training practices, and will introduce everyone to the latest updates on accounting, auditing, tax, management and other new strategies to make nonprofits survive in this competitive era. A variety of topics, training practices and workshops, industry specific sessions and many expert panels will make you aware of the strategies to be used to survive in this industry’s climate change.
The organization will hold its preconference on June 16 and the conference will take place on June 17 and 18, 2010. Another conference that is scheduled to take place on June 3, 2010 is the Nonprofit Leadership Conference, organized by the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits. The council will hold another conference to honor those who have achieved a milestone in the areas of innovation, excellence and advocacy. One more conference- the Annual NJ Nonprofit Conference, being organized by the Center will take place on December 8 this year.
These conferences are important resources for nonprofit organizations. These provide a platform to the professionals working in this industry to share the strategies to lessen the strains of nonprofit industry. Moreover, these conferences give you an opportunity to build and develop new professional contacts that can help you run the organization successfully in the near future.
The conferences form a large assembly of people who specialize in different areas of nonprofit organization, such as financial, administrative, etc. This provides you with a chance to figure out the special interest groups that may help in running your organization successfully and also provides you with social and networking opportunities.
If you are an individual involved in financial management of nonprofits or you are a consultant with nonprofit as your client, these conferences are opportunities to build more contacts and educate yourself.
