About the Conference

The 2013 conference theme is North Star Nonprofits: Charting Our True Direction.
Minnesota, the North Star State, has long been a national center of nonprofit activity and leadership. Whether finding solutions to entrenched local problems, building community through activism and arts, protecting and restoring the environment, promoting the health and education of underserved citizens or engaging in other charitable activities -- Minnesota's nonprofits are helping the state to chart a path forward. It's the nonprofit community that gives voice to our aspirations and ensures that we, collectively, chart our true direction.
This conference will bring together nonprofit leaders and our allies to focus on ways we can embrace inclusion as a powerful strategy for building a stronger Minnesota together. You'll leave with new networks, renewed energy and powerful tools to work in our increasingly complicated world.

Information for Presenters

As an incentive to encourage your broad participation at the full conference, workshop presenters will be registered for the full conference for free (maximum 3 presenters per session). MCN strongly encourages a maximum of 3 presenters (inclusive of any moderator). Any additional presenters will be required to pay the full conference registration fee, whether or not they attend the full conference.

Please note that MCN seeks dynamic workshops that include valuable insights from nonprofit leaders. Workshop proposals from our allies in government agencies and for-profit companies are welcome. However, please note that significant preference will be given to sessions that demonstrate active involvement of nonprofit professionals as session presenters or co-presenters.

In order to ensure the highest quality sessions for the conference, the planning committee will place priority on session criteria. Please review the session criteria, available online.
