NAO Conference

NAO's First Annual Meeting

The Oregon Zoo Vista Room
4001 Southwest Canyon Road
Portland

About this event

On September 30, join fellow member organizations to kick off the new direction of the Nonprofit Association of Oregon at this inaugural Annual Meeting. Oregon has never had a greater need for a strong community of nonprofits, and your involvement is crucial to making NAO a responsive organization and collective voice for the sector. Hear from a dynamic national speaker, and learn more about our work to mobilize and serve the sector.

Agenda

8:00 a.m. Join us for a hearty continental breakfast and meet our exhibitors
9:00-10:30 a.m. State of Oregon’s Nonprofit Sector Address, Election of NAO Board of Directors
10:30-11:30 a.m. Keynote
11:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Networking

Election of Board of Directors

As part of our new direction, we have revised our bylaws to reflect that we are now a membership organization. The new bylaws state that a majority of our Board of Directors shall be designated representatives from member organizations. In May, we asked member organizations for Board nominations, and we are working to build a slate that is both representative of our membership and of Oregon’s diverse nonprofit community. The slate will be presented to member organizations for a vote, and the newly elected Board members will be announced at the meeting. More information about the voting process will be available soon.

Keynote Speaker

Hear from Marcia Avner, former Public Policy Director and current Senior Research Associate at the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits. Her work includes advocacy and civic engagement training and education, as well as lobbying on election reform, tax policy, and other issues that are important to nonprofits and the people they serve. Marcia also teaches at the Center on Advocacy and Political Leadership at the University of Minnesota-Duluth. Her work includes national advocacy and organizing institutes and seminars for nonprofit centers, academic centers, and Wellstone Action. Her publications include: “The Lobbying and Advocacy Handbook for Nonprofit Organizations: Shaping Public Policy at the State and Local Level” and “The Board Member’s Guide to Lobbying and Advocacy” published by Fieldstone Alliance. Prior to her work with MCN, Marcia served as the Communications Director for U.S. Senator Paul Wellstone, Deputy Mayor of St. Paul, Executive Director of The Minnesota Project, Assistant Commissioner of Energy of the State of Minnesota, and Legislative Director with the Minnesota Public Interest Research Group.

Who Should Attend?

The Annual Meeting is free and open to both nonprofit and associate members of the Nonprofit Association of Oregon. Limit two attendees per organization.
