The NEPA Learning Conference was last held in August 2021. During the 2021 NEPA Learning Conference, attendees learned from local and national experts in a variety of fields, networked with peers, and discovered how they could create a learning culture within their organization. The conference shared strategies for adapting to a post-pandemic world, taught the importance of collaborative learning, and also touched on important and relevant topics including racial equity, innovation, and donor relations. Nearly 200 representatives from nonprofit organizations across Northeastern Pennsylvania attended the 2021 NEPA Learning Conference. The Scranton Area Community Foundation is excited to bring back the NEPA Learning Conference in September 2023.

“At the Scranton Area Community Foundation, we prioritize the importance of enhancing organizational capacity building and view it as transformative to the region as a whole,” said Laura Ducceschi, President and CEO of the Scranton Area Community Foundation. “We are looking forward to the next NEPA Learning Conference in 2023 and are grateful for all of the support from our donors and our partnering foundations right here in Northeastern Pennsylvania who help us to bring this important learning conference to the nonprofit community of our region.”
