About this event

On October 6, join fellow members of the Nonprofit Association of Oregon for our second Annual Meeting. Your involvement has been 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

The meeting will be from 8:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

8:00  Continental Breakfast & Networking
9:00  Business Program: Welcoming Remarks, Business Agenda & Introduction of Board Members; Looking Back, by Cynthia Cumfer; Looking Forward, Keynote by Ruth McCambridge
12:00  Networking

Election of Board of Directors

Our bylaws state that a majority of our Board of Directors shall be designated representatives from member organizations, and in May or June of each year, we ask member organizations for Board nominations. 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 Speakers

Cynthia Cumfer, co-author of The Oregon Nonprofit Handbook, will reclaim the importance of the nonprofit sector through a series of interconnected stories of people throughout our history who have worked for a nonprofit and those who have been impacted by them.

Cindy is an attorney whose practice is devoted solely to nonprofits. She has worked with nonprofits for 33 years and is the coauthor of the The Oregon Nonprofit Corporation Handbook. Cindy is a graduate of Lewis and Clark Northwestern School of Law. She also has a PhD in history from UCLA. She taught the history of nonprofit organizations at Reed College in the fall of 2003. Her book on Tennessee history, Separate Peoples, One Land, was awarded the 2007 Tennessee History Book Award.

Ruth McCambridge is the Editor in Chief of the Nonprofit Quarterly. NPQ tracks and provides analyses of important trends in the nonprofit sector and philanthropy, monitors public policy relative to nonprofits online, and provides well-tested but cutting edge information on nonprofit management both online and in its print journal which has often been called the Harvard Business Review of the nonprofit sector. NPQ works on a collaborative journalism model that invites participation from nonprofit leaders in building high quality intelligence that can be shared across boundaries of geography and field.

Before taking the Nonprofit Quarterly national in 1999, McCambridge worked for twenty years in community based organizations which combined service delivery on a self-help model with social change. She also spent ten years at the Boston Foundation providing capacity building resources to nonprofits from a pool established by local public and private funding sources.

The mission of NPQ is to promote active democracy through strengthening the
nonprofit sector.

Who Should Attend?

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