March 22, 202– Ocean Shores Convention Center

2023 Call for Presenters

The Nonprofit Leaders Conference for Coastal and SW Washington returns on March 24, 2023 to the Ocean Shores Convention Center. Our goal is to provide information and training for area nonprofits, many of which are small and run solely by volunteers in rural communities from Port Angeles to Ilwaco. We focus on being both geographically and programmatically accessible for these community leaders.

The Conference theme for 2023 is “Mission Possible.” We are delighted that longtime nonprofit executive Miriam Barnett will be our keynote speaker for this year’s conference.
The 2023 Conference will address the following topics:
• Communications
• Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
• Finance/Fiscal Management
• Nonprofit Management Nuts and Bolts
• Leadership – board and staff
• Adaptability
• Volunteer Management
All sessions will be 90 minutes in length, including Q&A.

Please complete the form below to submit your presentation application by January 30, 2023. We will respond to all proposals the week of February 1, 2023.
