About the conference

Impact today, Spark tomorrow. Ever feel you're too busy today to figure out how you're going to survive tomorrow? It's a constant challenge to juggle the demands of today with your need to manage change and innovate for tomorrow.

Join us and your peers at our premier management conference for nonprofits where we will help you find a way to do just that. We help you so you can help your communities. Our training session will help you:

  • Explore and provide updates on current regulations
  • Share ways to resolve personnel issues (like hiring and retaining your staff!)
  • Highlight and address the new and changing outcomes required by your community, funding sources, and donors

Come to the 21st Annual Wipfli National Training Conference where our goal is to help you tackle the tasks that you need so you can operate today while innovating to meet your needs for tomorrow.

Learn. Discuss. Explore. Take action.




Following rules and regulations can result in increased funding and cash flow, opportunities to expand, and increased impact in your community.



Best practices are what you need to do now, and next practices are what you need to focus on in the future to make your strategic and daily goals a reality.



What your leaders should know, driving an organization’s culture, protecting your reputation, leading inclusive teams, and making decisions for your future.



Keeps your organization’s IT function running securely by not only selecting the right software, but planning for your technology future.

Human Resources

Human resources

Changing demographics, new competition, the challenge to recruit and keep top talent, compensation and benefits—all are undergoing rapid changes that require today's HR professional to stay ahead of the curve.



Internal control requirements reduce the risk of cybersecurity attacks. Properly identify, prevent, and investigate fraud, plan for disaster recovery, and keep your company out of the six o’clock news.


Benefits of attending


New and Changing

New and changing

Explore what is new and changing. Give yourself time to absorb, question, learn, and challenge “it’s always been done that way.” Maybe that way still works; maybe there is a better way.

Talk with Others

Talk with others

You are not alone. Connect with others who have similar, or different, ideas on how to get the job done. Network, share stories, solve problems, and celebrate successes.

Leave the conference with action items you can implement immediately. Make what you do sustainable for future generations. Come with ideas—leave with a plan.
