Wisconsin Nonprofit Summit Speaker Submissions

Call for Speakers!

We are now accepting submissions for the 2023 Wisconsin Nonprofit Summit on July 27-28, 2023, at the Brookfield Conference Center in Brookfield, Wisconsin.

Our theme for 2023 is Together.

The nonprofit sector is vital to a healthy community and society; we should be incredibly proud of the work done. The sector should also be unapologetic in advocating for itself, individually and collectively. And while doing so, we must always focus on our purpose. Nonprofit organizations serve a mission and purpose that advances the communities in their ecosystem. We should focus all we do on furthering that purpose–without distraction, bias, or reservation.

We are seeking results-focused topics that touch on the following:

  • Human Resources
  • Information  Technology
  • Leadership /  Management
  • Marketing / Communications
  • Nonprofit Legal Issues
  • Nonprofit Operations
  • Volunteer Management


  • Deadline for submissions: March 10, 2023.
  • Agenda decisions will be finalized by early April 2023.
  • Registration launch: May 1, 2023

Please note:

Everyone has something to bring to the table, and we want to hear what makes you so uniquely you! That’s when the magic happens, and that’s when minds open. The Helen Bader Institute for Nonprofit Management aims to intentionally incorporate equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) into our annual conference and everyday work. Together, we can foster a happy and healthy nonprofit community.

Additional information:

Confirmed speakers will not be compensated for their conference participation. Speakers will be granted free conference registration for the day(s) of their presentation(s) but will be responsible for their travel and accommodation expenses, if necessary.

The Wisconsin Nonprofit Summit 2023 will be held in person at the Brookfield Conference Center in Brookfield, WI.

Speakers will be expected to present in an educational, non-commercial, non-self-promotional manner. NO sales pitches are allowed during presentations or sessions.

The Speaker Proposal form is now closed.

Thank you to all who submitted. Notification of acceptance will be sent out in early April.
