2024 UNA Annual Conference: Embrace + Embolden

Embrace + Embolden is about getting deeper into our practice and connecting with the core values of belonging, dignity, and humanity. Our goal is to move beyond the notion of empowerment towards a vision of strengthening. Through our work, we hope to recognize and support the innate power of our people and our organizations. We embrace because you belong. We embolden because you are powerful.

Why Attend?

Join UNA members, supporters, and friends for the largest gathering of nonprofit professionals in Utah. Learn from experts and connect with leaders from across the sector on the issues that matter most to you. The UNA Annual Conference brings you a full day of diverse sessions and speakers that offer insights and innovative approaches to addressing today's nonprofit challenges and needs.

The conference also provides you with invaluable networking and collaboration opportunities so you can build personal and professional connections and help you forge partnerships to advance your organizational goals. Nurture your determination and enthusiasm with training, resources, ideas, and services designed specifically for nonprofit professionals. You will leave with practical solutions, innovative ideas, and new relationships that will spark joy and inspire your work.
