Minnesota's largest annual nonprofit gathering is coming back in-person, and we hope you and your team can join us! 

The 2022 MCN Annual Conference marks the third iteration of MCN’s beloved annual gathering that is taking place during a period of extremes. It is also the year we are coming back together, returning to in-person, after two years of virtually convening and trying to make sense of a world turned inside out.

We are "Reunited for Good" as a collective of caring people to share how we are doing, where we are going, and what we will need to thrive as we continue the demanding work to get there. We hope you'll join hundreds of nonprofit staff, board members, volunteers, and allies as e take part of two days of learning, networking, and celebration.

Hosted at the Saint Paul RiverCentre on October 13-14, this convening will feature:

  • 40+ breakout sessions on timely topics important to your organization
  • Two inspiring and informative keynote addresses
  • Facilitated networking opportunities
  • Presentation of the 2022 Minnesota Nonprofit Mission Awards and 2022 Virginia McKnight Binger Unsung Hero Awards
  • 60+ resource exhibitors and prize giveaways
  • And so much more!
There's so much more information to come, and we can't wait to provide you myriad reasons to join the fun. In the meantime, if you'd like to reserve your space (at the lowest possible rates), sign up now!

We encourage you to pay the registration rate that is meaningful to and possible for you.
