Drury’s nonprofit leadership conference 2019: Today’s leaders mentoring tomorrow’s leaders

Since its inception, I have attended every Drury Nonprofit Leadership Conference.  I look forward to the event each year. It’s a great way to connect with members of the nonprofit community as well as learn from and engage with nationally recognized experts.

I come away from the conference with valuable knowledge and ideas directly applicable to my daily duties. Possibly even more importantly, I go back to work energized about the future of nonprofits and confident that our obstacles may be overcome.

Drury created the Master of Nonprofit and Civic Leadership degree as well as the Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership to provide the opportunity for people to learn and grow within the nonprofit world. The annual conference allows Drury’s graduate students to work with area organizations and gain exposure to the challenges of nonprofit leadership. Today’s leaders mentoring tomorrow’s leaders guided by professors and industry experts. This community-based approach produces well-rounded nonprofit leaders with relevant knowledge, vibrant networks, and real-world experience.

Registration is underway for the 2019 Drury Nonprofit Leadership Conference. Whether you’re a seasoned nonprofit leader, or just getting your feet wet, this event is certainly worth your time and money.


I’ll see you there!
