2017 Conference Update

Tue, January 31, 2017 1:36 PM | Laura Parshall

We're excited to announce that registration is now open for NEDRACon2017! 

Sign up now to be part of this not-to-be-missed milestone event, NEDRA's 30th Anniversary! We hope to see you in Portsmouth on April 27th and 28th for education, networking, and fun, and a celebration of 30 years of NEDRA. Don't wait to get your room: last year hotel rooms sold out fast, and we're expecting the same this year.

This year's conference will feature a keynote speech by Julissa Arce, courtesy of Greater Talent Network. (Our previously-announced keynote speaker, Luma Mufleh, is no longer able to attend the conference.) Julissa is an advocate for immigrant rights and education, and co-founder and chairman of the Ascend Educational Fund. Julissa will be signing copies of her book, My (Underground) American Dream. When you register, please indicate if you would like to purchase a copy at the conference.

Julissa's keynote will kick off our biggest conference yet. This year, we will have not three, but FOUR educational sessions in each time slot, with 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 on the NEDRA website.

Additionally, you asked, and NEDRA listened: since our survey data said that lunchtime round table discussions were too noisy for productive conversation, we've changed things up this year. The "last hurrah" of this year's conference will come in the form of three Think Tanks on the subjects of Prospect Management, Leveraging your Conference Experience, and Fundraising Data Science. Indicate your preference when you register to take advantage of this opportunity to network with your peers before the end of the conference!

Sign up today on the Annual Conference page.
