The momentum is building for Nonprofits in Motion next week!

The momentum continues to build for this year’s Minnesota Council of Nonprofits’ (MCN) annual conference, Nonprofits in Motion: Momentum for a New Minnesota (NPIM14), Nov. 6-7 in Saint Paul, Minnesota. I’ll be there presenting with NTEN’s Marketing and Publications Director, Joleen Ong, and we’re excited to connect to many NTEN Member attendees, as well as learn from and meet other nonprofit folks in Minnesota.

Like many organizations in the nonprofit sector, nonprofits in Minnesota have experienced major shifts in the past few years and are at a new stage of development. The conference is designed to look ahead to see how nonprofit leaders can make plans together and mobilize with the strengths of an improving economy, good organizational stewardship, and effective decision-making.

NPIM14 will offer two full days of breakout sessions, town hall discussions, an exhibitor showcase, and a keynote address. Plus, NTEN Members, MCN and MAP for Nonprofits will be presenting the Nonprofit Mission and Excellence Awards, recognizing achievements that make a significant impact to the quality of life in Minnesota.

Join Joleen and I for our breakout session on November 7: “Community-Driven Fundraising: Activating Your Supporters for Collective Change,” where we’ll break down the basics of peer-to-peer fundraising, and show you how to plan and implement a successful community-driven fundraising campaign from start to finish.
