2017 Annual Conference

Achieving Global

Jul 19 - 21 | Washington, DC

The InsideNGO Annual Conference is an exclusive, members-only event. One of the largest gatherings worldwide of professionals in the international relief and development NGO community, this year's event is not to be missed! The 2017 Annual Conference provides more opportunities than ever to learn, network, and celebrate the important role that operations staff play in advancing the work of mission-driven NGOs.


The 2017 conference takes place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center July 19-21. It will offer more than 100 sessions, led by sector experts and member practitioners. Attendees can build their own customized learning pathway throughout the entire conference, choosing to delve deep into functional-specific hot topics, collaborate with colleagues during breakoutdiscussions, or engage with cross-operational issues that impact the entire sector.


There are many opportunities for networking with your peers: before and after sessions, during function-specific roundtables, at lunch, and at other special events.


This year, InsideNGO is celebrating our 40th anniversary, marking four decades of serving the international development community and bringing our members together to learn, collaborate, and innovate. To recognize this significant milestone, we are hosting a 40th anniversary celebration dinner in conjunction with the annual conference. The dinner will take place at the Convention Center following the end of the first day of the conference, July 19. More details will be posted in February on this website, so check back then.


During our 40th anniversary celebration dinner, we'll be recognizing the InsideNGO Annual Excellence Award Winners – individuals honored for their specific contributions to their organizations and the NGO community.
