The AFP Northeastern Pennsylvania Chapter is grateful to the support of our conference partners including Wilkes University and Dawe Consulting who have made significant contirbutions to keep this conference affordable and accesible to all organizations.

We are thrilled about the caliber of master teachers and trainers that are part of the conference faculty, all who are significantly contributing their time and talent as well.  The workshops offered during the Nonprofit Leadership Institute typically are full-day workshops that cost at least $200 to attend and the half-day master classes at least $129.  Friday’s Philanthropy Forum takes a full day of workshops and sessions typically seen at the AFP International Conference (with the same presenters) which costs $199 for a one-day pass and brings it to Northeastern PA.

The rates for the 2017 Conference are below.  For Early Bird registrants (by 9/12) AFP will absorb EventBrite fees.
