2019 Biennial Conference

Building the Global Nonprofit Education Community:
Diverse Perspectives Strengthening the Whole

Cass Business School | part of City, University of London

July 16—17, 2019

Overview

In the spirit for which NACC was founded, the 2019 Biennial Conference in London will focus on enhancing and strengthening the exciting growth that is occurring in our field.

In addition to the optics of holding a NACC event in a setting outside the U.S., demonstrating the NACC network as global and open to innovative ideas from all the nations and facets of civil society institutions, the event will produce quality discussions, exchange of knowledge and experience, and an edited book volume on the proceedings presenting the best thinking drawn from the convening themes. The edited volume will include issues related to transnational approaches to the field of nonprofit sector research and pedagogy.

Registration

Conference registrations must be completed by Friday, June 28. For security purposes and due to limited seating, Receptions and Philanthropy Walks required separate registration by May 17 as a final guest list must be provided to our reception sites eight weeks in advance of the conference. Only pre-registered guests will be permitted entrance at the Reception(s). Photo IDs for all (non-minor children) reception attendees must be presented upon arrival. All minor children under age 14 must be supervised at all times.

Conference Program & Themes

>>View the Conference Program here

This is the first time the conference will be held outside the USA, which NACC hopes will provide a significant opportunity for reflection and discussion regarding the diversity of perspectives and approaches to nonprofit/NGO education. Recognising the international growth of nonprofit/NGO programmes, the conference has five themes:

  1. Curricular innovation, challenges and variance in nonprofit education within civil society;
  2. Emerging research – new directions and unexpected new approaches – an opportunity for scholars early in their careers and those pushing the boundaries to showcase their work;
  3. Extracurricular innovation – e.g.- teaching outside the classroom;
  4. Institutional structure and advocacy – e.g. – resilience of nonprofit education programmes;
  5. Knowledge transfer and cooperation across universities, countries, and practitioner communities.

As with previous NACC conferences, the best papers will be considered for publication in the Journal of Nonprofit Education and Leadership. In addition, there is also a planned book on global nonprofit education; conference papers will be considered for chapter inclusion.


Highlights of the London Conference

Two high-profile evening events include a reception in the UK Houses of Parliament for delegates and their partners at no additional cost.

Central London conference location hosted by the Centre for Charity Effectiveness at Cass Business School, part of City, University of London.

An innovative Philanthropy Walk including visiting the only building outside Jerusalem to have hosted three major faiths over the last three hundred years. Guests may attend the Walk on either Monday 15 July at 15:00 pm or Thursday 18 July at 10:00 am.

The opportunity for knowledge exchange: Learn about global nonprofit/NGO teaching and research innovations and how to build resilient nonprofit studies programmes.

Message from the President

Dear NACC Members,

I know that everyone is sprinting to finish grading in time to get out of dodge for the winter break. But I wanted to take a quick moment to report on and thank everyone for a great NACC member meeting in Austin, Texas.

Let me begin by saying that the real heroes of the day are our Interim Executive Director Dave Eaton and TAMUs incredible Nicole Collier. Dave worked with the hotel, the restaurant and the ARNOVA staff before game day to ensure that everything was in place. On game day, Nicole stepped in and stepped up to make sure that it all worked. From notes, to name tags to nachos, Nicole made it all happen. Without the efforts of both Dave and Nicole we would have been eating potato chips and hitting the Starbucks in the hotel lobby.

Instead of that, we kicked off the NACC member meeting with a great lunch speaker. Mike Nellis is the CEO of the Austin Community Foundation and has a long history in bringing together diverse stakeholders to solve local problems. As we finished our lunches Mike and Dave Springer the director of the RGK center at UT Austin told us about the fascinating data and research based partnership between The Community Foundation and RGK Center. In addition, to getting great information the pair looked absolutely fabulous in these massive brown leather chairs.

We then spent a considerable amount of time doing our traditional member center updates. This is where we go around the room and everyone tells stories about what is going on at their center. We hear tales of great things happening and of terrible things happening. But it is always a highlight of the NACC member meetings.

Next we received an update from Stuart Mendel about the NACC accreditation process. It was a great opportunity to catch everyone up where we are in the accreditation process. Stuart has done a phenomenal job shepherding this process. We currently have 10 schools going through NACC accreditation, many of them are reaching the external reviewer stage. This means that very soon someone will say “We are NACC Accredited,” and it will be a real thing.

We wrapped up the formal part of the meeting with a brainstorming exercise led by Renee Irvin and Peter Weber. The goal of this was to identify what members thought NACC should be doing to sort through and evaluate the various publishing opportunities. It was an interactive event that generated fantastic feedback for moving forward.

We then had a chance to spin records (yes, actual vinyl) with David Springer and the UT Austin All-stars. I picked a Grateful Dead album and taught a group of millennials the words to Casey Jones and Sugar Magnolia, something they will perhaps eventually be thankful for… someday, maybe.

We then headed on over to the Austin Taco Shop for the NACC reception. With plenty of drinks and lots of fun the conversations continued around issues NACC and non-NACC related. While most people headed back to their rooms to get ready for their conference presentations the next day, a few intrepid NACCsters made it over to The Continental Club for a night of amazing live music. One of the band members clearly identified with NACC when he said, “I am a musician, we invented the term “Not for Profit.”

So with that we will call 2018 a success and call it to a close. I hope everyone has great holidays and a restful break. Lots of fun stuff coming on your NACC dial in 2019, so stay tuned.

As many of you know, the next ISTR (International Society for Third-Sector Research) conference is going on July 10-13 in Amsterdam. This is a great organization and conference that many NACC members will be attending. When NACC decided it was necessary to hold our conference every other year we looked to ISTR as an example of how that could work.
