We were thrilled to see so many of our members at ACN's first-ever virtual annual member meeting on June 16, 2020. 

After realizing we couldn’t hold our in-person meeting, our committees quickly pivoted our 31st annual meeting to an online format that featured association updates, as well as Q&A and networking opportunities. 

ACN board president Jill Misra kicked off the meeting with a State of the Association—including the following record-setting stats and notable differences from the last fiscal year:

  • 2019’s 30th Anniversary Celebration & Annual Meeting drew a record-high number of attendees 
  • Current membership is at a record high—and includes a 7% increase from this time last year
  • Membership has diversified by geography and membership type, including out-of-state memberships representing Wisconsin, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, Kansas and California
  • 3 of our in-person events sold out
  • 44 of our members volunteer on the board of directors or committees

Next up were committee reports, an overview of key accomplishments in the past year and and plans for FY21 from our Finance, Governance, Marketing & Communications, Membership, Nonprofit Relations, Programming and Strategic Planning Committees. 

After that, we announced and welcomed our new board membersBrad BallDon Raack and Shailushi Ritchie. (Stay tuned for a post to learn more about them and their roles on the board). 

The meeting wrapped up with a Q&A session to answer members’ current questions and concerns about the association, as well as small group networking in breakout rooms

Though of course we prefer to be together in-person, we are pleased that we could bring our community together virtually. We look forward to making ACN even more beneficial for members and nonprofits in the coming year!
