2021 Conference for North Carolina Nonprofits

2022 Conference for North Carolina's Nonprofits

North Carolina's annual gathering of nonprofit leaders for learning, networking, and connecting!


November 2-3, 2022
Durham Convention Center

The last few years have widely exposed the inequities in our workplaces, communities, and culture. Now is the time to gather, acknowledge, and change.

Join us on November 2-3 in Durham for the 2022 Conference for North Carolina’s Nonprofits, Building on Inclusion, Achieving Equity. Our first in-person event in three years will celebrate our nonprofit sector, connect fellow nonprofit colleagues, challenge our assumptions and biases around inclusive and equitable organizations and communities, and inspire the upwards path for our nonprofits to effect intentional and lasting change.



Sharpen Your Inclusion Edge: The 8 Step Approach Jada Monica Drew, CEO, Social Designs

For nonprofit leaders beginning the DEI journey or who need a refresh in sustaining inclusive practices, learn how to merge the traditional pillars of your organization with growing a more inclusive culture for your staff, constituents, and partners.


Experts and practitioners will facilitate interactive sessions on current nonprofit topics including equitable fundraising and funding, advancing young leaders, inclusive leadership transitions and succession planning, board diversity, storytelling and media coverage, successful cross-sector partnerships, and more. Follow session tracks that fit the work you do, your topical interests, or your upcoming projects.


This half-day workshop for nonprofit staff and board members, attorneys, CPAs, and consultants will cover the legal compliance policies, rules, and issues that affect 501(c)(3) nonprofits.


Connect with colleagues and friends during Wednesday’s reception, Thursday’s luncheon, and throughout the Nonprofit Marketplace.


Sessions are eligible for CPE, CLE, and CFRE credit hours (pending approval).


Your safety and in-person comfort level during the conference is important to us. We’re monitoring current conditions and recommendations to provide a healthy event and will post updates online to accommodate Durham County requirements.
