2013 Nonprofit Summit Registrants Qualify for $1,000 Grant
FREDERICK, MD – February 28, 2013: One lucky nonprofit organization attending the 2013 Nonprofit Summit on March 19 will earn a bonus for attending: a $1,000 unrestricted grant, generously provided by PNC. The nonprofit representative must be present at the time of the drawing.
The Summit will be held at FSK Holiday Inn and Conference Center. More than 120 nonprofit staff, volunteers, and board members involved in nonprofit management, fundraising, governance, board development, marketing and strategic visioning have registered to attend, and a sell-out is expected.

Joining the already impressive list of speakers is Jim Lyons, Senior Partner with Pride Philanthropy; Ralph Serpe, Vice President, Development, with Baltimore Community Foundation; Carol Kolmerten, Partner, with Charitable Development Consulting, and Tom Lynch, Esq., with Miles and Stockbridge.
This year’s conference schedule has been restructured to offer attendees multiple seminar options. Attendees can choose from three “intensive” morning sessions that are three hours in length, or two 90-minute morning sessions. Selecting from one of the three intensive sessions, participants will be able to delve more deeply into the topic, with ample time for questions and discussion. The intensive sessions are “Change Management,” led by David Grau, owner of DG consulting; “Changes in the Funding Landscape,” led by Elisabeth Hyleck, Special Initiatives Director for the Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers; and “Change Management: Sustainability through Planning,” led by Catrese Brown, Senior Associate with Transition Guides. The 90-minute session options include “Changes in Technology,” “Changes in Staffing Needs,” “Change Happens: Communication Management for Inside and Outside Your Organization,” “Changing a Community through Networking and Collaborating,” and “Changing Responsibilities of Board and Staff.” For a complete schedule and speaker bios, please visit the Summit website.
Continental breakfast and lunch is included as part of the registration fee. The lunch break will feature a presentation by David Grau titled “Mastering Change in 100 Days.” Following lunch, attendees will hear a panel discussion about “Changes in the Funding Landscape,” and the day will close with “Effective Leadership During Times of Change” by keynote speaker Darryl Jones, retired President and CEO, Maryland Association of Nonprofit Organizations.
The 2013 Nonprofit Summit is sponsored by the Ausherman Family Foundation, The Community Foundation of Frederick County, PNC Foundation, and United Way of Frederick County.
