MNN’s Annual Conference: Looking Back and Moving Forward

Using past lessons to form the future of the nonprofit sector

November 2, 2016 | Framingham Sheraton


Each fall since 2008 MNN has hosted an annual conference and expo. This event brings together hundreds of nonprofit professionals—and the business leaders they work with— from across the state for a day of inspiration, learning, and networking. In addition, attendees find new ways to make their work more effective and efficient through the resources and services offered by the 50 businesses that exhibit at the conference.

The nonprofit sector is constantly evolving, growing, innovating, and reforming to meet the ever-changing needs of those it serves. This year’s conference, Looking Back and Moving Forward, will tap into the collective expertise of the nonprofit sector and take a look at what’s working, and what needs to work better. Topics will include: tried and true best practices; innovative technologies and techniques; adapting to the changing funding landscape; supporting the next great nonprofit leaders; and moving diversity and inclusion from talking points to cornerstones of our organizations.

As the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network enters its second decade as the only association that unites and strengthens the state’s entire nonprofit sector, we look to our community of nonprofits and the leaders who have shaped the sector. What are nonprofits doing right? What are organizations and leaders still struggling with after all these years? And what can we learn from the past to shape how we exist in the days, months, and years ahead?

The future looks bright for the nonprofit sector.
