The Inland Northwest Nonprofit Conference community discussions began in 2010 and the first event launched in 2011. It was borne from a collective community need for comprehensive educational outlets and capacity building tools to support nonprofit organizations throughout the Inland Northwest area (eliminating the need to travel to larger cities for this access). This conference aims to provide resources to help organizations leverage their full potential in order to maximize the impact of their programs. Conference programming is developed from local, regional, and national research and is fine-tuned by nonprofit professionals working in the sectors involved.
There are thousands of organizations serving a broad range of needs throughout Washington and Idaho and our small firm has been proud to plan and host this event. Each year we've hosted over 60 different organizations of varying sizes and with the positive results and growing numbers, we will continue to do so!
Nicole has worked for the conference since its inception in 2011 and is responsible for advertising, marketing, and website content as well as directing and overseeing event logistics as it relates to vendors, exhibitors, and speakers.
AE Consulting formerly hosted consulting services to nonprofits. Those services are no longer offered because the founding owner, Andrea Estes, no longer works daily with the business.
"The foundation believes in the importance of capacity building in our region's nonprofit sector, and subscribes to the idea that stronger staff and stronger organizations create greater programmatic impact. While capacity building takes many forms, the Nonprofit Conference represents an exciting new resource for our region's NPOs in the area of professional development."
