Please join us for two immersive days of education, information and networking. The Oregon Nonprofit Leaders Conference brings together nearly 400 nonprofit leaders for sessions on current, relevant and inspiring topics facing nonprofits today. The conference also provides a forum for nonprofit representatives to meet face to face with funders from across our region.

Corona Virus Update – 2020 Conference is Cancelled

Dear Colleagues,
We’re writing to inform you that the Oregon Nonprofit Leaders Conference Steering Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s conference, previously scheduled for April 20-21. We make this decision out of an abundance of caution and in the best interest of current public health concerns.
As you know, many events in Oregon and across the country are being cancelled as one measure to combat the spread of the coronavirus. Your workplaces and communities are likely already feeling significant impacts as we all adapt to take the appropriate precautions at this time. We strongly believe that this is the time when we must be resilient, flexible, responsive, and engaged with our communities and support one another in our efforts to serve our clients, our volunteers, and our donors.
We are committed to continuing to serve as a resource for learning and engagement. Please watch for updates via email, our website, and our Facebook news feed regarding future learning and networking opportunities offered by our steering committee and other providers.
We will arrange for refunds for those of you who have already made registration payments for this year’s conference. Please be patient as our all-volunteer committee takes the necessary next steps. If you have an urgent question, please contact us.
Remember to take care of yourselves, your families and your clients.
Gratefully yours,
Doreen O’Skea, Conference Chair 
Gabe Howe, Conference Vice-Chair

This was the best conference of the 6 or more that I have attended!  Always new material along with the tried and true guidelines for management and fundraising. I only wish that I could have attended all of the workshops. Thank you all for your hard work and focus to bring about such a rich two-days! It was an honor to be there. ONLC contributes a huge resource consciousness to the vibrancy and well-being of our Southern Oregon Communities!”

This is the best conference for nonprofits – I keep coming back because there is always more to learn and having so many heavy-hitters in one place is an excellent opportunity to network and strengthen our nonprofit both internally and externally.”

“I found the sessions to be much more informative, interesting and engaging than many of the conferences I go to. Topics were presented in accessible and emotional ways through a lot of story which I found to be extremely helpful and inspiring.”
