United Way conference set for May 14-15 in Albany
The United Way of New York State will sponsor its annual state conference May 14-15 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Albany.
The theme of the event this year is "Recentering." The conference will focus on how United Way organizations can "recenter" assumptions, activities, and priorities in the wake of funding challenges and a change in national and philanthropic priorities created by the terrorist atrocity of Sept. 11.
The agenda includes a variety of presentations on issues in not-for-profit management, public policy, marketing, development, diversity leadership, youth development, human resources, volunteer management, personal growth, and other topics of interest to United Way managers and volunteers.
