"The Changing Lives, Making Impact conference was extremely interesting and a great networking opportunity.
I particularly thought the workshop on the 2015 State of Nonprofits in Riverside County was very helpful for me
as a nonprofit ED. I also shared the key takeaways with my staff in regards to the report and they realized the
impact nonprofits have on the economy and our community.
Thank you for this conference and looking forward to next year."
Lisa M. Jimenez, M.S.
