Nonprofits are used to doing more with less – particularly in recent years. Those lessons will resonate through the Nonprofit Learning Point’s (NLP) 15th Annual Conference, slated to be held September 8 in Richmond.
“Each year we feature a national speaker/author of a nonprofit management bestselling book. The general topic is chosen by our students,” said Rachel Kopelovich, Director of NLP. “It is also our opportunity to award the Certificate of Achievement in Nonprofit Management to all the students who have completed 12 classes with NLP.”
This year’s keynote speaker is Nancy Lublin, CEO of DoSomething.org and founder of Dress for Success. Through DoSomething, an Internet youth volunteer group, Lublin helps teens manage social media and pop culture for causes that they care about. As the founder of Dress for Success, Lublin provided interview suits and training for career development to women in need; Dress for Success is now in more than 70 cities in four different counties.
Lublin will address the “power of zero” at the conference, demonstrating how nonprofits and businesses can work together to do more with less by incorporating techniques she outlines in her book, “Zilch”.
“Knowledge and skills are the foundation of great careers,” said Lublin. “Having a chance to acquire some of both can make even a mundane job meaningful.”
After Lublin’s keynote, speaks there will be a choice of a workshop or panel discussion. The workshop – Nonprofit & Business Engagement: Using the “Stakeholders Wheel” to Successfully Find and Partner with Businesses – will connect businesses and nonprofits, ensuring their partnerships are effective.
The capacity building panel discussion will address ways in which increased efficiencies can help nonprofits and the individuals working within them.
“Nonprofits should come to learn something and to network with over 200 of their nonprofit peers. Our funding partners enable us to offer subsidized rates to meet the needs of nonprofits and nonprofit budgets,” said Kopelovich. “It is a rare opportunity to be able to attend a conference with such a renowned speaker for $50.”
The conference is September 8 from 8:30 am- 12:30 pm, doors opening at 7:30 am, and will be located at Capital One Tower Center in Richmond, and costs $50. To register for this event go to www.nonprofitlearningpoint.org and click on the Conference link.
