NYJL Forum for Nonprofits
The Forum for Nonprofits (FNP) hosts an annual full-day educational conference to address key issues facing small to mid-size nonprofits and the communities they serve. Attendance is open to both NYJL volunteers and the general public. The NYJL FNP, originally known as Volunteer Conference, was created as a signature project for the NYJL Centennial in 2001 and has taken place every year since. The forum takes place each April, featuring invited subject matter experts on topics including volunteer retention, technology trends, best practices for recruitment and training, and utilizing social media in a nonprofit environment.

FORUM FOR NONPROFITS 2017
- Built to Last: Foundations for Change Management and Sustainability
- Wednesday, April 26, 2017
- What can your nonprofit do to build strong foundations for the future? Donor retention and strong governance are key, as is preparing for disruption, financial, social, or otherwise. We face a changing demographic of nonprofit employees, volunteers, and donors, and constant technology innovation. With this, there is a change in the way people both communicate and receive messaging, and an increasing focus on your foundation. Funders require strategic plans, strong governance, and supporting metrics. Join us on April 26, 2017 to learn how to prepare your organization for this demographic shift and ensure you have the foundations to support your organization financially and operationally, and benefit from disruptive innovations.
