The NPI Summit is a day-long conference that provides high-quality, low-cost professional development and networking opportunities for nonprofit organizations serving North Central Washington. The event is open to nonprofit staff, board, volunteers, or anyone interested in nonprofit work.
This year’s keynote is Erica Barnhart, Senior Lecturer at the University of Washington’s Evans School of Public Policy and CEO of Claxon, a marketing consulting firm. The topic is “The Energetics of Language: how to use the power of words to drive change, inspire engagement, and lead a happier, healthier life.”
The rest of the summit includes a dozen presentations over three sessions that cover topics including grant writing, marketing and outreach, succession planning, diversity and inclusion, event planning, board/director relationships, and mindfulness.
“The summit is a great opportunity to learn best practices from experts in their fields” said Claire Oatey, director of community grants and summit programmer. “We’re excited about the diverse range of topics this year – there’s something for everyone.”
