Our 20th anniversary Camp Finance is going virtual again in 2021. New York’s nonprofit leaders have repeatedly called this conference the most exciting and informative professional development opportunity. While Camp Finance began as a financial management conference developed first and foremost for CFOs, fiscal staff and board members with fiscal oversight responsibilities, we continue to expand our sessions to be informative and beneficial to other stakeholders, communications, marketing, program and fund development staff and board members. Check back for event updates and a schedule!
Keystone Nonprofit Conference (formerly Nonprofit Day), Erie Nonprofit Partnership
October 25-26 (hybrid: online and in-person)
This year will be the 20th celebration of the annual conference. It has become the premiere regional conference for nonprofit learning, networking and growth. Keystone is the nickname of Pennsylvania where the conference occurs and from where many of our attendees hail. More importantly, the definition of keystone is “the central principle or part of a policy, system, etc., on which all else depends” or more literally “a central stone at the summit of an arch, locking the whole together.” The Keystone Nonprofit Conference is our new name and is a reflection of what our nonprofit sector means to our community. More information on the schedule, topics and speakers will be released; sign up for the email contact list here.
