Princeton Community Works Nonprofit Conference, Jan 30-Feb 1 Day & Evening Sessions, $20 pp

February 1, 2023


Online Conference Addresses the Increased Needs of Nonprofits in 2023!

Princeton Community Works 2023 Expands to Empower More Nonprofits with over 30 Workshops; Remains Affordable for All, January 30, 31 and February 1, 2023

Princeton Community Works (PCW) is a dynamic, online conference designed specially to provide nonprofit boards, staff and volunteers with opportunities to learn more about nonprofit management, develop practical skills and network with other nonprofits. More than 25 NEW workshops will be offered along with perennial favorites over three days (January 30, 31 and February 1, 2023) at one inclusive and affordable registration fee of $20 per person. Participants can choose as many or as few workshops that fit their schedules.

“Moving Princeton Community Works online in response to the pandemic enabled us to grow it in size to over 700 attendees and expand our reach beyond our local geography,” explains Marge Smith, the founder of Princeton Community Works. “The heart of the conference is based on that each person has the capacity to help build their community. Princeton Community Works is committed to building skills and enable all people who want to make a difference to engage and connect,” added Marge Smith. “The workshops are designed to address the increased needs organizations are facing in 2023. More importantly, our top-level speakers offer practical and proven strategies for empowering nonprofits of all sizes and potential.”

Empowering Community: Inspire. Learn. Connect.

The theme of PCW 2023 – Empowering Community: Inspire. Learn. Connect. – will be infused throughout the conference to encourage more people than ever to engage actively with each other, gain inspiration and learn critical skills, all to empower their causes.

“Affordability is essential to empowering individuals, especially during these inflationary times. That’s why we have been very deliberate about keeping the registration fee low at $20 per person and offering scholarships,” explains Smith, who plans the annual event with a team of volunteers. “Volunteers, board, and staff are building a better world. They deserve the opportunity to hear from top speakers and receive the quality training to support their support important work.”

KEYNOTE – Trenton Central High School Band

Working together in Harmony.  This year’s keynote features the Trenton Central High School (TCHS) Band performing musical concepts to demonstrate different techniques for leadership, coaching, right skills, wrong person, and conflict resolution. Through a lively and inspirational performance, TCHS Band will demonstrate what happens when teams are not in harmony, then show what can be accomplished when teams are in tune and performing in harmony.
