2017 Independent Sector National Conference

Overview

Event Overview:

Independent Sector provides an unparalleled gathering place for the nonprofit community. We connect staff from charities, foundations, and corporate giving programs so they can exchange ideas, collaborate, and take action on issues of common concern.

Annual Conference attendees report that one of the most exciting parts of the conference is the opportunity it provides for working with colleagues from America's most energized nonprofits, foundations, and corporate philanthropy programs.

The IS Annual Conference is the premier opportunity for people from across the nonprofit and philanthropic community to come together and examine pressing issues facing our organizations and the communities we serve.

Join nonprofit and foundation leaders from across the country as they challenge our current thinking and explore creative solutions that will make the nonprofit community even more effective.

The Annual Conference presents many opportunities for one-on-one contact with key leaders from the nonprofit community.
