Did you know that the Nonprofit Leaders Conference was created in response to the Great Recession? In those times, nonprofits were tasked with providing critical resources to our communities while navigating new and unfamiliar territory and many unknowns.
“In the midst of the ‘Great Recession,’ many nonprofits were struggling to survive in an environment of lost jobs and hunger where their work was needed most. Also, local governments were struggling and unable to provide needed services to local residents. With these points in mind, the Conference was organized to provide opportunities for nonprofits in Mason, Grays Harbor, Pacific and Wahkiakum counties in particular, for 1) training by professionals with extensive nonprofit experience, 2) networking and identifying common goals and needs, and 3) to hear from and meet with foundation leaders in plenary sessions and speed meets.”
Mayor Crystal Dingler, NPLC Founding Member, 2007
Then and now—we remain deeply dedicated to our mission of strengthening rural and coastal nonprofits. We’ll get through this, together.

The biggest challenge in leadership is change: the social landscape, trends in volunteering, nonprofit board turnover, unpredictable funding. Professional development and connecting with peers are keys to success for nonprofit leaders in organizations of all sizes. By learning and evolving, leaders can become effective stewards of their cause and their stakeholders so they can become sustainable now and into the future.Sheila Siden Resource Strategies
As an Executive Director at a non profit I don’t often get the time to sit and soak in the years of experience that are out in the non profit world. I can get so busy with day to day operations that I live in my whirlwind hole of doing good, that I forget to connect. This conference was amazing as there were so many other amazing everyday super hero’s in the room sharing their passions, struggles, successes and wisdom that the room literally vibrated with love.Beth G. – The HUB Center for Seniors
This experience was priceless and will forever change the way that I run my non profit and also the way that I live my life. The power of good that can be accomplished by human beings willing to do for others is an extraordinary thing and I feel lucky to have been a part of it.
