Nonprofits and Philanthropy in a Polarized World: Speaking Truth to Power and Using Power to Speak Truth
The 48th Annual ARNOVA Conference in San Diego, California saw attendees from all over the world and was the first ARNOVA conference for 300 of our 851 attendees! The conference covered a wide scope of topics within philanthropy, through over 354 paper presentations, 45 poster presentations, 47 panels, 3 lightening research roundtables, and 44 colloquia.
The multifaceted nature of philanthropy, nonprofit, and the voluntary sector was illustrated throughout the diverse research, sessions and presentations at our Annual Conference this year. This year’s theme, ‘’Nonprofits and Philanthropy in a Polarized World: Speaking Truth to Power and Using Power to Speak Truth’’ reminded us of the breadth and impact of philanthropic action and research. These ideas were explored deeper in the opening plenary.
Following a day and a half of engaging presentations and panels, our members came together for the 2019 Annual Awards Luncheon to recognize the accomplishments of their colleagues and friends.
At the ARNOVA awards luncheon, we honored our outgoing board members, John Ronquillo, Mary Tschirhart, and David Suarez for their service, and we thanked our wonderful previous Executive Director, Shariq Siddiqui.
This luncheon, as well as the many receptions and sessions throughout the conference, were made possible by a number of generous sponsors.
