What is the Nonprofit Management Institute?
Nothing is more energizing than getting away from the office and immersing yourself in new ideas with an engaged community of peers. Occasionally we all need to refresh and reinvigorate to perform at our best! The Nonprofit Management Institute's program includes presenters who are leaders in the field of social change: academics known for their work at Stanford and at other renowned universities and well-known practitioners who will share their insights and experiences from successes in the field. We aim for you to leave energized, brimming with ideas for your organization, and with a long list of new contacts
The Nonprofit Management Institute is for senior-level nonprofit executives including CEOs, executive directors, board members, and others with significant leadership responsibilities. Sessions are for leaders at all types and sizes of organizations, domestic or international. In 2012, attendees came from 34 states and 8 countries. About 15% of participants are funders. Every year the Nonprofit Management Institute features an all-new program; so many attendees come again and again.

"This conference deepens our knowledge, our work, and provides resources that have the potential of leaving a lasting footprint on our communities."
"The presenters were top class but just as importantly, open and connected to where people are while giving us ideas to the possibility of where we could go. I am inspired more than ever!”
“This institute has been incredible. It addressed many issues that I and other nonprofit leaders are grappling with, and I will send my colleagues here and want to remain connected.”
"Astonishing level of correlation/relevance to our world and to our opportunities. A very interesting mix of academia/field expertise. Mostly excellent presenters both in content and presentation. And lastly - good hosts and perfect location."
"This institute consistently delivers high quality speakers, timely topics, research-based methodologies, and thoughtful hospitality. What I find most compelling about this program are the profound questions it generates for leaders, organizations and the nonprofit sector. Thank you so much for investing in nonprofit leadership development so intentionally."
"I'm leaving with several new ideas - I feel reinvigorated and ready to take action."
"This was my first time to attend. Will be sending staff and partners in the future!"
"The NPMI was incredibly insightful and provided a space to reflect on challenges, opportunities and innovations in our sector. Great variety of speakers combining academia and every day applications. Thank you!"
"Overall, this was one of the best professional development events I have ever attended. Many of the ideas presented at the Institute will probably be discussed by our senior staff or board. I am going to recommend our CEO or Chief Development Officer attend next year. Go Cardinal!"
"Thank you so much for this forum. Very energizing in troubling times. Made some great contacts as well."
"Conference is a great resource - gets you thinking, exposes attendees to new ideas, speakers and sparks creativity."
