Special keynote session:

In Times of Urgency: Reflections from the Nonprofit Sector

With the COVID crisis affecting all areas of operations, an increased drive toward social justice, and big changes in funding streams, nonprofit organizations faced challenges and opportunities in 2020 like never before. This panel brings together nonprofit thought leaders to share their reflections on what they and others did to meet the moment, and how the experiences of 2020 may forever shape their leadership and organizations going forward. Moderated by nonprofit lawyer Don Kramer, the panelists will discuss what they learned from the past year and what may become some of the major legal trends of the new normal.
