third annual spring conference
Thursday, April 27, 2017 marked the Chatham-Kent Nonprofit Network’s Third Annual Spring Conference! This year we shook things up with the theme, On the Edge of Change. Our keynote speaker Suzanne Gibson (Suzanne Gibson and Associates) lead us in a high-energy interactive morning session on how we experience and react to change as a sector, in organizations and on a personal level.
Participants chose two of four topics as a breakout session which will took place before lunch.
After lunch, we were energized through an inspiring talk and a community jam session led by Julie Ross from SongC!rcle with special guest Bren Dubé.
The rest of the afternoon we spent together as we delve into a hot topic panel called The Nonprofit Hunger Games. This session touched on the tougher issues that affect the sector (and outside the sector) on challenges such as, competitive fundraising, staff retention, what makes some organizations more successful from others and much more! Participants will be encouraged to share their own questions during the registration process. Lead by our moderator, Brad Davis from Family Service Kent, our panelists gave some great insight to the questions we are facing in the sector and beyond!
To help celebrate and relax after a day of learning we ended early in order to unwind after a great day of learning with a Nonprofit Happy Hour!
