2018 Workshop Submissions
We’re looking for presenters with a range of expertise, skills, background, and instruction styles to share their knowledge with our conference audience. The Madison Nonprofit Day Conference is a diverse, dynamic, and engaging space for nonprofit and social good professionals to learn, connect, grow, and share.

Each year, we do an open call for proposals for the conference. Your submission opens us to new ideas, new takes on old topics, and provides us the opportunity to develop a creative, explorative conference agenda that offers growth and learning opportunities for a cross-sector, cross-discipline, mixed skills, multi-cultural audience. It also helps shapes the conversation, practice, and focus of attendees for the months ahead. Thank you, for your submission.

Dates and Timelines
The 'Call for Proposals' will open on Wednesday, February 21, 2018 and will close on Wednesday, April 25, 2018 (has been extended to May 5th, 2018). At that time, we will do our first assessment of the submitted proposals to determine if a second call is required. If a second call is required, that will run from Wednesday, May 2nd to Wednesday, May 30th, 2018.

The full review process of proposals will start during the month of June with decisions announced in July 2018.

The 2018 Keynote is confirmed. The 2019 Keynote is already in conversation. The next available keynote (unless an alternate is required) will be 2020.
