Four Reasons to Attend our 4th Annual Partnering for a Purpose Conference

Oct 26, 2021 | Blog

Registration is open for United Way of Broome County’s Partnering for a Purpose, our annual conference that offers professional development opportunities for those working in the nonprofit sector. Set to take place on Thursday and Friday, November 4th and 5th, this event will be fully virtual to ensure the safety of all speakers, staff, and attendees.

Still on the fence? Here are four reasons to register for our 4th annual Partnering for a Purpose Conference today:

  1. You don’t want to miss Dr. Carol-Ross Scott’s keynote. Our 2021 conference kicks off with a dynamic keynote speech from Dr. Carol Ross-Scott, Vice President of Student Development and Chief Diversity Officer at SUNY Broome. After a brief welcome, Dr. Ross-Scott’s keynote will cover diversity, equity, and inclusion topics. Attendees will better understand how organizations can truly “walk the walk” when it comes to their DEI efforts.
  2. You don’t want to miss our other sessions, either! This year’s conference offers a variety of professional development opportunities, including a Funders’ Panel and sessions and workshops on grant writing, marketing, internships, and more! You can view the full two-day agenda here.
  3. Stay up-to-date on grant opportunities. At United Way of Broome County’s “Looking Back and Moving Forward” session on November 5, our staff will offer updates on initiatives to come in the next year – this will include the timeline for our 2022-2023 Strategic Community Priorities Grant Program. The presentation will consist of ways organizations can learn more about the application and the process for the upcoming funding cycle.
  4. It’s free to attend! United Way of Broome County offers Partnering for a Purpose as a support service to the community-based organizations across our county and beyond. As in previous years, there is no cost to attend the conference and no limit on the number of people from your organization who can attend.

Our speakers and staff are excited to connect with you! Mark your calendars for November 4 and 5, and register now.
