Registration Deadline: September 30th
The Nonprofit Practices Institute hosts an annual Board Celebration Dinner to honor and recognize the service of our region’s nonprofit board volunteers.
Board members currently serving nonprofit organizations in Chelan, Douglas, and Okanogan counties are invited to enjoy a complimentary dinner at Sleeping Lady Resort in Leavenworth or Sun Mountain Lodge in Winthrop. A special guest speaker provides inspiration and rejuvenation to those who dedicate themselves to this vital leadership role in our communities.
- Doors open at 5:30pm, presentation begins at 6:15pm, and dinner will start at 7:00pm.
- Both dinners are buffet/family style. Each guest will receive 1 complimentary beverage ticket; additional beverages can be purchased at the no-host bar.
- Dinner is complimentary, however we do require a credit card to reserve your seat. If you cancel after September 17th, you will be charged $75 to cover the cost of your meal.
- You may bring a spouse or guest who is not an active board member, but you will need to pay the $75 to cover the cost of their meal.
To make sure you receive invitations to these events and more, join our mailing list and select the “Nonprofit Board Member” email list.
