Public Policy Trends and Their Effect on Your Mission

Monday, October 29 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
4445 Main Street, Kansas City, MO 64111


As a nonprofit leader in today’s society, do you feel as if you are navigating in unfamiliar or uncertain territory? While you are busy focusing on your nonprofit’s mission, external challenges and public policy changes may be impeding your progress. 

Join David L. Thompson, VP of Public Policy for the National Council of Nonprofits, for a look at how external and internal sector trends are rocking the boat. By tracking regional and national trends, the National Council of Nonprofits identifies how policies and practices within the nonprofit community and at all levels of government – local, state, and federal – affect the ability of community-based nonprofits to meet their missions. You’ll leave this session with a better understanding of how these trends impact the nonprofit community, and a stronger appreciation of what it takes to steer your mission through uncertain times.
