Thank you to the over 660 attendees, 46 sponsors, over 40 presenters and 30 volunteers that joined us December 7 to help make the 2022 NJ Nonprofits Conference our biggest and best yet! Here are just some of the highlights.
We are honored that New Jersey Lieutenant Governor Sheila Oliver will be giving opening remarks at the conference. Her comments will be followed by a panel of legislative leaders discussing New Jersey’s public policy climate for nonprofits and the communities we serve. Panelists will include Senator Steven Oroho (R-24), New Jersey Senate Republican Leader, Assemblywoman Yvonne Lopez (D-19), Deputy Speaker of the New Jersey Assembly, and Assemblywoman Shavonda Sumter (D-35), Chair of the New Jersey Legislative Black Caucus.The panel will be moderated by New Jersey Center for Nonprofits Board member Jamar Tyndale.
Let’s start the day hearing how vital nonprofits are to the New Jersey economy and landscape, and how nonprofits can engage with government leaders for all people of our state.
You’re driven by a mission to improve the quality of life for all people in our state. But your life and work have been thrown off track by the pandemic. Even with all the talk about things getting back to “normal,” the anxiety most of us have felt during the pandemic will not disappear magically. Stress and burnout will undermine our recovery if we do not make personal and workplace well-being an urgent priority.
The pandemic continues to disrupt your professional life and increase demands on your home life. To top it all off, the daily barrage of Zoom calls, emails, and chat messages which distract you and stress you out has increased. You know there must be a better way to take care of yourself and balance work, life, and the tech tools that seem to be getting in your way more often than they help you or the victims you serve.
If this sounds like you, this fun and interactive keynote will inspire you with mindful approaches for creating sustained balance in your life so you can lower your stress level, focus on getting the important things done, and be more present for yourself, the people you serve, and your family. There will be no case studies or complicated research to unpack. Come prepared to pause, reflect, share, and practice living a more balanced life in the “new normal.”
