El Paso | August, 5, 2016, Edinburg | August 9, 2016 & Lubbock | September 15, 2016
In recognition of financial and geographic barriers many Texas nonprofits face in accessing quality training and networking opportunities, OneStar restructured its signature Texas Nonprofit Summit in 2016 into a series of regional events hosted throughout the state.
In August, the community-organized El Paso Nonprofit Business Summit brought nonprofit, higher education and business leaders together to reenergize the nonprofit sector in El Paso and the Rio Grande Valley Nonprofit Business Summit engaged sector leaders in dynamic conversations about meaningful and sustainable change for local communities.
In September, the Igniting Creativity: Service & Leadership Symposium held in partnership with the Volunteer Center of Lubbock engaged attendees in dynamic sessions and provided practical tools to act on personal and organizational missions. Business and community leaders, teachers, students, and nonprofit organizations convened with the purpose of building a stronger South Plains.
