Best bang for your buck: the Craigslist Foundation Nonprofit Boot Camp. Recommended especially for those new to the sector. But even if you’re a nonprofit veteran, you’ll find quality speakers covering essential topics.
The following is the promo piece for the San Francisco Bay Area:
Join 2,100 emerging and established nonprofit leaders at Craigslist Foundation’s fourth annual San Francisco Bay Area Nonprofit Boot Camp. Get inspired and energized to take your nonprofit to the next level!
This action-packed day will coach you in key aspects of starting and running a nonprofit or social enterprise and link you with innovative ideas, tools, people and organizations. Just $50 gets you workshops, keynotes, exhibit hall access, one-on-one coaching, breakfast & lunch, and the opportunity to network and collaborate with hundreds of emerging and established nonprofit leaders. Tracks will feature Nonprofit Basics, Fundraising, Social Entrepreneurship, Board of Directors, Big Ideas (Nonprofit Trends) and Technology.

Don’t miss David LaPiana’s program, "Keys to Success as a Nonprofit Executive Director," and the program on social entrepreneurship moderated by Sheila Warren. Also, for those who have never attended a basic program covering Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code (i.e., the section describing tax-exempt charitable organizations), you must go see Joe Kroll, who will educate and entertain you.
Boot Camp is coming to New York this year on September 15. Additional Boot Camps are planned for Los Angeles, Chicago, and Washington D.C.
