“The content of the breakout sessions were absolutely phenomenal. The presenters were so well prepared and the materials were interesting and engaging. I wish all conferences met this standard - what a high bar to set!" – Nonprofit Day 2010 participant

CompassPoint provides conferences that promote skills enhancement and community building for nonprofit leaders and organizations. Through high-quality content and well-structured conference learning and networking opportunities, participants strengthen their abilities to carry out their individual roles within organizations and the collective community goal to achieve greater social equity. Through our convenings we achieve the following:

  • Support personal and professional development
  • Bring together the people and resources to reenergize you in your work
  • Provide a place where you can connect with your peers in the field
  • Bring to the fore important issues and information that impact your efforts

Our staff, with the engagement of key community partners, designs each convening to create a unique experience that will leverage the time you spend with your community. Our three major conferences are the following:
