DMA Nonprofit Federation Hosts Nonprofit Leadership Summit June 12-14 in Tucson
May 4, 2006 Nonprofit leaders from around the nation will gather June 12-14 in Tucson, Arizona as the DMA Nonprofit Federation hosts its second annual Nonprofit Leadership Summit. This year's gathering of top senior executives from the nonprofit world will focus on how organizations can manage and take advantage of major changes in fundraising strategy.
The facilitated, interactive sessions at the Summit will provide senior-level nonprofit executives with an opportunity to meet with their peers to explore:
· Emerging trends that affect the nonprofit sector;
· The need for change to respond to these new trends;
· How to assess an organization's capacity for change;
· How to best accomplish change in order to create a stronger fundraising capacity.
"As the legal and social environments that affect charitable giving continue to evolve, nonprofits that don't anticipate and actively embrace change will quickly find themselves left behind," said DMANF Executive Director Senny Boone. "We're excited to be able to bring nonprofit leaders together to discuss how these changes, when managed effectively, can bring about new levels of success in nonprofit fundraising.
Our thanks go out to Pegg Nadler, Rich Fox, and the planning committee members who have put together a remarkable line-up for Summit attendees, Boone added.
Presentations and panel discussions at the Summit will be led by key players in the nonprofit community, including author and consultant Kay Sprinkel Grace, noted fundraising consultant Jennie Thompson, Phyllis Feedman of SmartGiving, and Bernard Ross and Clare Segal of the UK based Management Centre.
The Nonprofit Leadership Summit will take place on June 12-14, 2006, at the Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa in Tucson, AZ. Additional information can be found online at www.nonprofitfederation.org.
