Conferences and Forums
Our annual convenings and periodic conferences are designed to stimulate thought about best practices of nonprofit leadership and management, to provide high-level training from leading authorities around contemporary issues facing the nonprofit sector, and to share the latest research findings about the sector.
Our 29th annual convening is October 28, 2021. For nearly 30 years, the ASU Lodestar Center's annual conference has brought together hundreds of nonprofit professionals to learn from nationally recognized leaders in the sector, to exchange ideas and to gain valuable capacity-building tools. This year's highly anticipated convening will be no different. Registration details will be released later this summer.
Our forum was April 28, 2021, with a virtual format. The theme was Volunteers: Essential Workers for Community Solutions. Volunteers, donors, staff, board members and interested community stakeholders joined us for a forum that revealed the role and promise of skills-based volunteers, the essential nonprofit “workforce” for the “now and the next” in advancing community well-being.
