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
Nonprofit Association of Washington (NAWA) organizes the annual Washington State Nonprofit Conference, the largest gathering of nonprofits of all types in Washington. The conference happens in mid-May and brings together leaders 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.

The 2022 Washington State Nonprofit Conference is online on May 18-20. Our theme is “Discovering a New Way” – inviting in different perspectives, uplifting innovative and adaptive stories from the field, and pushing our collective thinking and creativity. The conference features multiple keynote speakers, panels, special features, and 24 different workshops across our four topic tracks:

  • Moving Beyond Resilience
  • Building Collective Power
  • A Force for Growth, A Force for Good
  • Managing for Meaningful Service
