At Nonprofit HR, we believe that talent is the most important driver of change at mission-driven organizations. That’s why the theme of our 2017 Summit is People Focus = Mission Impact. The 2017 Nonprofit Talent & Culture Summit, which will take place April 5-7 in Washington, D.C., is a transformational three-day event where nonprofit and association leaders will exchange ideas and collaborate on new ways to advance their missions and goals through talent and culture.

As of November 1st, 2016, early bird registration for the Summit is now open. Register before December 1st to take advantage of our lowest available price of $875. You’ll gain strategic insights and inspiration with over 40 sessions from the leading experts in nonprofit talent and culture (learn more about our speakers here), as well as evening outings and networking events. Join us for three days of engaging with and learning from nonprofit leaders from across the country. Here’s more about the program that’s shaping up for the 2017 Summit:


The Summit will feature keynote sessions led by nationally recognized, forward-thinking experts in nonprofit talent and culture including:

  • Rabbi Elimelech Goldberg (also known as Rabbi G), founder of Kids Kicking Cancer

  • Lori Malcolm, Chief Culture Officer at United Way

The Summit will focus on four themes: Leadership; Culture as a Lever for Impact; Diversity, Equity & Inclusion; and Talent Acquisition & Pipeline Development.
