Featured at this event: The first ever statewide report on the economic impact of California’s nonprofits

This year’s CalNonprofits Policy Convention is an assembly of nonprofit leaders with thought-provoking views and insights on the crucial policy issues facing nonprofit organizations today. It is designed to spark dialogue and “big-picture” thinking.

I love that this Convention is so different from a typical conference! Nice to have a day focused on larger issues and ideas, and I learned so much from other folks in the sessions. I'm excited to get more involved with policy discussions - and action - next year.
--Carol Frykman
