Future Conferences and Events


We offer many conferences and events throughout the year to help you train, develop, motivate and inspire your staff. Our annual conference, the United Way Community Leaders Conference, offers executive, volunteer, staff and partner leadership a convening designed to celebrate, innovate and network among like-minded peers working across communities worldwide. There are conferences designed for professional development and local and regional offerings to help offset travel costs. These are open to all, but primarily targeted for United Way staff.
The vast majority of our conferences and events are approved for flex credit use and provide excellent opportunities for staff and relationship development.


For your convenience, we've included here regionally-hosted United Way conferences (if approved for flexible credits) with the link to the event information.
