Leading For Tomorrow Nonprofit Summit

Leading For Tomorrow Nonprofit Summit

We have important nonprofit organizations in the Suwannee Valley region, with excellentstaff members and dedicated volunteers. The programs and services provided by local nonprofits help develop and enrich our communities in numerous ways, enhancing the quality of life for many individuals and families. Our community would be a very different place if not for the work and support of our non-profit organizations.

The world for nonprofits is rapidly changing. Funding sources are a moving target,
technology is fast-paces and challenging, volunteer recruitment and retainment requires special time and skills. This is happening while the need for nonprofit services continues to grow. Professional development opportunities are available in other parts of Florida and tend to be expensive and time-consuming. Our area nonprofits have shared on a regular basis their need and desire for local, professional development opportunities.

Recognizing the importance of our nonprofit community, the current challenges in this
arena and the desire for local trainings, the United Way of Suwannee Valley is convening this summit to promote leadership and capacity building for our local nonprofits. This year we will bring to our community the Leading for Tomorrow Non-Profit Summit. This event, the first of its kind for our community, will be for nonprofit leaders, staff members, board members, community volunteers, and interested citizens.

Workshops are planned throughout the day to enhance skills in fundraising, board
development, social media/marketing, as well as, overall leadership and organizational
capacity building. Well known presenters will hold hands-on trainings, as well, summit
participants can network with foundations, various state and local service providers, as
well as, structured networking sessions. The Summit is the first step in a series of planned professional development opportunities for our nonprofit community.

Whether you are associated with a community service agency, church, government entity, school, civic club, or another local service agency, we encourage you to attend this event.
