The 2nd annual Non Profit Conference and Awards Celebration 2019, a collaboration between the Branford Community Foundation, the Guilford Foundation, and the Shoreline Chamber of Commerce.
Last year’s conference was a huge success, drawing more than 100 nonprofit leaders, volunteers, and staff from all over the Shoreline.
The conference this year will be kicked off by keynote speaker Amy Fenollosa, director of coaching and talent development at The Latimer Group. Amy’s engaging presentation is centered on inspiring personal brand awareness and authenticity.
Education workshops throughout the day include:
