This year's conference features more workshops, more resources, and more opportunities to network than ever before. The nonprofit sector is constantly evolving, growing, innovating, and reforming to meet the ever-changing needs of those it serves. This year's conference on November 2nd, Moving Forward for a Better Commonwealth, will tap into the collective expertise of the nonprofit sector and take a look at what's working, and what needs to work better. As MNN enters its second decade as the only statewide association that unites and strengthens the entire nonprofit sector, we are looking to our community of nonprofits and the leaders who have shaped the sector. What are nonprofits doing right? What are organizations and leaders still struggling with? And what can we learn from the past to shape our work in the days, months, and years ahead? The answers will help us all build a better Commonwealth.


Join 600+ nonprofit and business leaders from across the state for a day of inspiration and education.
