Have you ever gone to a conference and not really gone away with anything actionable you can take home and share with your team?
Well the 2015 YNPN National Conference in Little Rock Arkansas was the complete opposite of that!
We sent 5 board members to represent Southern Nevada at the National Conference and we are just busting at the seams to share with all of you the information we learned. Throughout the year we will be hosting coffee sessions where you can come and spend an hour or two with a board member and discuss a specific topic such as: All Things YNPN, Social Media, Government Relations, Fundraising, and more.

17 - SAVE THE DATE! Board Boot Camp
During June 26-28th over 100 chapter leaders from the 37 chapters of the Young Nonprofit Professional Network gathered in the Twin Cities to collaborate, connect and help shape the future of the network. Two of the chapter leaders from YNPN Southern Nevada chapter, Jacob Murdock and Tim Mullin, were able to attend. This three day conference kicked off with the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits’ Annual Leadership Conference, where the YNPN chapter leaders interacted and attended sessions from non-profit leaders from across the state of Minnesota. The theme for the conference this year was “Exploring Diverse Voices”. This one day event was very beneficial for the Southern Nevada representatives. The second and third day of the conference was just for YNPN chapter leaders. Time was spent discussing the progress of the different chapters, sessions highlighting best practices, regional discussions and non-profit organization trends.Read more
