#MANOAC22 gives nonprofit leaders from across the state of Maryland an opportunity to learn, connect with each other, and discuss important issues. We are seeking presentations, workshops, panels, and facilitated discussions that will help leaders of nonprofit organizations achieve a greater impact in our communities, organizations, and personally.

Theme: This is the moment to care…and connect!

This is the moment to care…and connect! is part of Maryland Nonprofits’ 30th Anniversary year celebration and our ‘This is the Moment to Care’ campaign. Presenters are invited to link their sessions to the theme of the conference related to building caring connections as we emerge from three years of pandemic crisis and the awakening around racial justice and equity.

How can we work differently, create and design organizations differently, and create an impact that connects meaningfully with each other and the communities we serve? What does this moment in history mean for leaders and organizations, now and in the future? 

What’s new in 2022:

The Maryland Nonprofits 30th Anniversary Conference is a three-day event. One of the three days will take place virtually. The other two days will take place at the Maritime Conference Center. Plenary sessions and featured presentations may be live-streamed for the virtual audience.

In alignment with our 30th Anniversary campaign, ‘This is the Moment to Care’, the conference will offer a full track on revitalizing workplace cultures into caring spaces where employees bring their full, authentic selves to work towards creating a thriving collective.

This conference will feature topics that promote creativity, reflection, dialogue, and storytelling through facilitated dialogues and play-based workshops, and our event management platform/app will offer a one-stop-shop for conference information, viewing sessions, and attendee networking.

We will be following Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines and will keep all participants updated about any COVID-related changes with the safety of our attendees in mind. Guests may be required to provide proof of vaccination or proof of negative COVID test to attend in person.

What we are looking for:

Maryland Nonprofits aspires to strike a balance between presentations that help nonprofit leaders address current organizational challenges or take advantage of current trends and opportunities, encourage reflection, are inspiring, and provide space for dialogue and storytelling, including reflections on experiences with the COVID-19 pandemic, and have applicability to the field of social work, child welfare, or human services.
