Nonprofit Finance Conference

Charting Change: 2019 Nonprofit Finance Conference

Wednesday, December 4
Cross Insurance Center, Bangor

MANP’s one-day conference for executive directors, finance staff, board members, program, development and operations staff and more.

Focused on Authentic Intergenerational Collaboration, We Can Go Far in Maine 
Keynote by Alyssa F. Wright, Wright Consulting Group

How we build relationships is at the root of all we do in the nonprofit sector. With a constantly changing philanthropic landscape, it is critical we learn how to work together to become strong, resilient organizations that put mission forward, first and always. It’s time to ensure we all come together – across all differences. To unite in this way, and have any practice work, we must capture this critical moment and build momentum. Using current data insights interwoven with stories from her work across generations, and across the nation, Wright will share as to how organizations are doing this well and ensuring resiliency in their models and missions. Change is inevitable, but by building trust amongst us all, we can ensure a bright future for our state.
