The Network Learning Confab is an annual gathering that brings together the leaders of our network of state associations of nonprofits. These leaders represent a collective membership of more than 25,000 nonprofit organizations nationwide.

In 2024, the Confab will take place in-person at the National Housing Center in Washington, D.C.

In attendance will be key influencers for nonprofits: state association CEOs, board members, membership directors, communications specialists, and public policy staff from across the country. 

Sponsor logos and links will appear:

• On the members-only Confab website, pre- and post-event
• In event materials
• In the Virtual Exhibit Hall
• During recognition of all sponsors at the welcome session
• In approximately six announcements sent to 300+ nonprofit influencers

To reserve your sponsorship (or to get on the list for 2024), email Rick Cohen

      Confab Engagement Fund "Add-On" Donation

      Donations to the Confab Engagement Fund support scholarships to help defray the cost of travel to the Confab for state association staff members. The intent is to make it equally affordable for all our network members to engage in this critical in-person convening, no matter where they’re located or what their budget size.

      All sponsors are invited to contribute an “add-on” donation to support the Fund. CEF donors are acknowledged at the Confab with a special ribbon on their name badge and recognition from the podium.

      Praise from past Confab sponsors:

      Art Ferreira of Coeus Global speaks with a Confab attendee

      "It is great to have face time with our long-term state partners and to have an opportunity to meet with new staff members that may be attending the Confab for the first time. It gives me the opportunity to discuss the value of our member benefit and to go over the finer points like how state associations earn quarterly royalties when their members use our service. We look forward to participating every year.... We wouldn’t miss it!"
      --Art Ferreira, Coeus Global, Event Sponsor 2014 - 2023

      Tim Sarrantonio of Neon One speaks with a participant

      "Confab represents what the future of in-person conferences will be like. Intimate, actionable, memorable, and focused on the experience of building a connected community. We continue to sponsor it because of the meaningful conversations we have with stakeholders who help support our sector. I also find that the content is some of the most interesting and thought-provoking I have encountered, even compared to conferences that I am asked to speak at. Confab isn’t about sponsoring a booth, it’s about supporting a larger vision of change in our sector and it actually lives up to that in practice."
      --Tim Sarrantonio, Director of Corporate Brand, Neon One

      Donna Groh and Lauren Toups of UST speak with a Confab participant

      "I can't think of any other conference we go to where we have been kept so informed with logistics and such - great work! We, of course, will always be there to support the network and appreciate all that you do at the National Council of Nonprofits to support the good work being done around the country. Congrats on a very successful meeting." --Donna H. Groh, UST

      Firespring reps speak with a Confab participant

      "You put on a great conference for your members. It was great to see first-hand how people in leadership positions at the associations operate and communicate with each other. Connecting with the other vendors was a huge bonus as well. I so appreciate all of the long hours, sweat and fine details that your team put towards the Confab. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again next year.” --Brendan McDaniel, Firespring"

      Maia Lee of Affinity Fundraising Registration speaks with participants

      "Thanks to you and your hard-working staff for pulling off a great conference. Awesome food, venue, programs, and organization. It’s a privilege to get to work with nonprofits and their associations, and with all of you. Looking forward to next year!" --Dana Campbell, Affinity Fundraising Registration

      Gregg Bossen of QuickBooks Made Easy speaks with a participant

      "It was a wonderful conference! You have a great group of attendees and I always feel so welcomed as a sponsor. Looking forward to next year!!" --David Webb, QuickBooks Made Easy
