Over the next few weeks, we’ll be unveiling our 2020 Conference speakers. This week, we are excited to announce that Vu Le is in! And we can’t wait. Whether Vu is writing about Trust Based Philanthropy, reminding us why being a Nonprofit ED is actually great, or suggesting alternatives to overused jargon, he is widely known and appreciated for his honest, thoughtful, and forward thinking. He is, in a word, BOLD. And what is resolve without a little boldness?
Vu Le (“voo lay”) is a writer, speaker, vegan, Pisces, and former Executive Director of RVC, a nonprofit that promotes social justice by developing leaders of color and fostering collaboration between diverse communities.
Known for his no-BS approach, irreverent sense of humor, and love of unicorns, Vu has been featured in dozens, if not hundreds, of his own blog posts at NonprofitAF.com. Vu’s passion to make the world better, combined with a low score on the Law School Admission Test, drove him into the field of nonprofit work, where he learned that we should take the work seriously, but not ourselves. There’s tons of humor in the nonprofit world, and someone needs to document it. He is going to do that, with the hope that one day, a TV producer will see how cool and interesting our field is and make a show about nonprofit work, featuring attractive actors attending strategic planning meetings and filing 990 tax forms.
The location of this year’s conference, RESOLVE, has been updated to… everywhere! MNA is going virtual. With all of Montana’s health and safety in mind, we are transforming the conference into an energetic digital experience.
This year, you will gain access to all sessions and materials to watch live or later. We can’t wait to share an enriching experience that will deliver the connection, learning, and growing you’ve come to expect from MNA.
Join us at the 2020 MNA Conference, RESOLVE, from September 21st through the 25th.
