Taking the time to attend conferences is important for our own professional development and the success of our nonprofits. There is enormous shared value when we learn from experts and connect with leaders working in partner organizations. Our communities are stronger when there are spaces in which staff, board members, and volunteers from nonprofits, philanthropy, and the public sector can imagine new solutions to complex problems together.
Washington State Nonprofit Conference - Moving Boldly May 17 - 19, 2023

Nonprofit Association of Washington (NAWA) organizes the annual Washington State Nonprofit Conference, the largest gathering of nonprofit boards, staff, and volunteers in Washington. The conference happens in mid-May and brings people together to learn, connect, and inspire. It offers a marketplace of ideas and resources that allow for efficient one-stop shopping to help you imagine solutions to your organization’s biggest challenges.

After attending the Washington State Nonprofit Conference, you’ll return to your nonprofit with resources to share with colleagues and actionable items to apply to your work. And best of all, the conference offers unique opportunities to connect with nonprofit peers across the state.

This year’s Washington State Nonprofit Conference will be May 17-19! We will explore the theme “Moving Boldly.” We spent time adjusting to life in a pandemic, and now is the time to recognize the need for moving boldly as we embrace what comes next. Join us for a unique hybrid conference that includes online and in-person experiences. 

  • Day 1- Learn: Online 
  • Day 2 – Advocate: Online 
  • Day 3 – Collaborate: In-person, University of Washington, Tacoma
