Engaging Top-Notch Talent

Monona Terrace Community & Convention Center
Let’s mix-and-mingle at Madison Nonprofit Day. End the day with an invigorating engagement session on recruiting and working with top-notch talent.
Organizations with a board, volunteer, and or employment opportunities bring a small stack of your informational materials, business cards, and people ready to talk. The focus is on information that is easy to hold and hand-off during your engagement.
To the talent, whether you are just interested in networking or serious about finding an opportunity, bring your business cards, have your LinkedIn profiles at the ready, and be prepared to start networking. Be prepared to engage and make yourself memorable.
Cupcakes & Conversation is a fun and engaging opportunity around recruitment. Explore new board members, volunteers, and employees while gaining new insights on finding the right people or the right agency. Don't spend all day at another recruitment fair. Have fun, collect names, start conversations.
This event is open to all Madison Nonprofit Day Conference attendees and the general public— free of charge. Thursday, October 31, 2019, from 4 pm until 5 pm, at Monona Terrace. Have fun, get discovered, and diversify your talent acquisition, then go trick or treating.

Be Fearkess, Let Us Match You!
LunchConnect is a fun way to meet other conference attendees. Sign-up to participate and one of our Organizers will match you with a small group of other participants, so you can meet, greet, and enjoy lunch, the day before the Conference.
Attend the conference having already accomplished a significant task— meeting new people. A large part of the conference is networking. Over 400 people will be in attendance, and you should get to know all of them. Okay, at least 10 or 15 people you didn't know before.
Our Partners & Sponsors
Madison Nonprofit Day is a social sector, capacity building project founded by Collaboration for Good, but would be impossible to provide without the generous help and contributions of our partners and sponsors. From time (volunteer organizers) to space (pre-conference and other activities) to financial contributions (food, scholarships, conference bags, and much more), our partners and sponsors make Madison Nonprofit Day happen. Sponsors are still being added.
