Conference Overview

Join NCRC and leaders from business, government, community non-profits, media and academia April 13-16, 2011 in Washington, D.C. for cutting edge dialogue and hands-on trainings, workshops, plenaries and topical sessions on issues affecting America’s communities.

Morning and Afternoon Plenary Sessions

We bring national speakers to the stage to enlighten, inform and inspire you. Some will share wisdom from the street, others will share wisdom gained from academia. You are sure to walk away with a renewed passion too see under-resourced communities restored.


We believe that the people who know the topics best are the ones living and working on the front lines of our communities, which is why you will see a wide variety of presenters teaching on topics ranging from fundraising to CRA expansion. Our workshops focus on sharing skills, experiences and wisdom gained, instead of giving formulas or recipes for success. Both practitioners and those interested in these topics will benefit.


Formal networking sessions augment the relationship-building that naturally happens over dinner or after a workshop. Networking sessions are informal and allow deeper connections to form.


Quality resources are crucial to the success of any organization or program. The 2011 exhibit hall will be packed with information, fundraising resources, books, and other valuable tools to help us be more effective in our communities.
