Preconference Board Governance Workshop (optional)

The 3rd Annual Nonprofit Kaleidoscope starts with a Board Governance Workshop from 3:30-5:30pm on Monday, June 26. This is an ideal session for executive directors and/or board members who are new to their roles or need a refresher.

Welcome Reception at Makoshika State Park:

The Glendive Nonprofit Café will be preparing your dinner outdoors in the Pavilion at the base of the Switchbacks of Makoshika Park.  It is a lovely outdoor setting and we welcome you to join us for this complimentary event.  The Glendive Kiwanis Group will be helping us with the grilling, and the Glendive TBID grant is making this possible (bed tax funds.)  Wine and soft drinks will also be served with dinner.

Kimberly DePover is offering a guided walking tour of this, the largest state park in Montana.  Paleontologists visit the park each year as many dinosaur bones have been discovered here.  Check out the Museum in the park to see our artifacts.

Hope you will be able to join us - the Glendive Nonprofits welcome you to our beautiful little place in Eastern Montana.
