I attended the two-day long 18th Annual Nonprofit Conference on Sustainability Strategies at Desert Willow Conference Center on October 14-15. The conference was very helpful for me to meet a lot of new people from nonprofit sector. There were several sessions on important topics such as public relations, social networks, strategic planning, secretes of consultants and fund-raising for non-profit initiatives.
The stall comprising of books about nonprofit sector was fabulous.
The conference was organized by ASU Lodestar Center which is located in the building next to the Cronkite School of Journalism. We had visited them previously to learn about the Center which organizes several programs on nonprofit.
I enjoyed the keynote speech of Kay Sprinkel Grace, an international fund-raising expert. She spoke very beautifully about the importance of dreaming before doing something big. She asked the participants what would have happened if Martin Luther King had a plan without a dream. She said everyone among us should dream big and very big.You can’t make a big difference until you have the courage to dream.
