2017 Nonprofit Day Conference

Collaboration: Go Further Together

CNE’s annual Nonprofit Day Conference is a full-day of learning, idea-sharing and networking designed to help nonprofit professionals, board members, and community leaders increase their knowledge to build capacity and impact.

This year’s conference will feature a morning plenary session, 20 breakout sessions to choose from, plus a nationally recognized keynote speaker and nonprofit guru. Register today, as the conference typically sells out well in advance!

Friday, March 17th from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Antlers Hotel, Downtown Colorado Springs


Keynote Announced: Joan Garry

Widely known as the “Dear Abby” of nonprofit leadership, Joan works as a strategic advisor, crisis manager, change agent & strategic planner. Joan’s blog - Because Nonprofits Are Messy - is the go-to resource for change makers in need of advice, great ideas, & a bit of humor. CNE is excited to have Joan help us all make our work a little less messy & a lot more joyful!
