Annual MNA Conference
We plan to offer this conference virtually, and if possible, in person. View Updates Here!
The annual MNA Conference is the largest and most extensive conference for Montana's nonprofit sector. Every year, nonprofit staff, board members, volunteers, consultants, foundation staff and trustees, community leaders, public officials, students, and others interested in the nonprofit sector gather to learn, connect and discuss the latest issues facing the nonprofit sector.

2019 was the year to make a BREAKTHROUGH! Our Conference inspired more than 400 participants to imagine a world where individuals, organizations, and communities have realized their full potential as leaders, supporters, and champions for the missions that shape Montana and empowered to BREAKTHROUGH on every level.
Our 2018 Conference theme was Catalyst: Ignite Your Strengths for the Common Good. Together we explored how tenacious leadership, valuing and investing in people, and building a resilient organizational culture are the fuel we need to be effective in challenging times.
Go Further Together: In 2017, we celebrated the transformation that takes place when we join forces for impact, and asks us to reflect on our individual power and responsibility to foster relationships and communities that move the common good forward.
2019 Awards Ceremony & Dinner
In 2019, MNA and AFP collaborated to honor philanthropic and nonprofit impact in Montana by merging MNA’s Annual Conference Reception and AFP’s Annual Awards Dinner into one meaningful event. Together, we showcased a combination of individuals and organizations that embody the spirit of philanthropy and nonprofit leadership in Montana.
