2020 Virtual Conference
Our 2020 conference, RESOLVE, took place everywhere! That’s right, MNA went virtual. With all of Montana’s health and safety in mind, we transformed the conference into an energetic digital experience. For the first time ever, our conference attendees (nearly 2,000 of them - a record for MNA) gained access to all sessions to watch live or later - over 40 hours of curated content. Also for the first time, we offered a Whole Org Registration with no limit on attendees so everyone from interns to board members from one organization had the opportunity to learn and grow together. And that's how we RESOLVE.
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.
