Register now to join us for two days of education, networking, and fun
celebrating a milestone event - NEDRA's 30th Anniversary


This year's conference will feature a keynote speech by Julissa Arce, courtesy of Greater Talent Network. Julissa is an advocate for immigrant rights and education, and serves as co-founder and chairman of the Ascend Educational Fund. Copies of her book, My (Underground) American Dream will be available for purchase on-site at the conference from an independent local book store, RiverRun Books. IMPORTANT: If you wish to purchase a book on-site, please make sure to indicate this on your conference registration form - we will be placing our book order with the bookstore based on the numbers we receive through registration submissions.

We are pleased to announce that this year, we have not three, but FOUR educational sessions in each time slot, featuring both local speakers and some from as far away as California and Illinois. For more information about the sessions that will be offered, see the Schedule-at-a-Glance.


This year we are also excited to announce that we will be featuring three Think Tanks covering the subjects of Prospect Management, Leveraging your Conference Experience, and Fundraising Data Science as a "last hurrah" of the conference. Indicate your Think Tank preference when you register to take advantage of this opportunity to network with peers before the end of the conference!


Lastly, for those in need of financial assistance to be able to attend this year's conference, we strongly encourage you to apply for the Heather Reisz Memorial Scholarship for new

researchers and the Helen Brown Group-NEDRA Conference Scholarship
