Discover The Spirit Of Innovation and Inspiration
At The 2014 NFPW Communications Conference

Workshops, Media Marketplace and Sightseeing To Combine
For Unique Blend of Professional Development, Creativity and Fun

You are invited to attend the NFPW 2014 Communications Conference, to be held Sept. 4-6 in Greenville, S.C.! From host city and hotel to programming and professional development to pre-conference and post-conference tours, you will be exposed to the mysteries of the Carolina Spirit and find that there's a little in you, too.

Conference registration is now open. The early bird registration deadline is Friday, August 8.

Our host affiliate, Media Women of South Carolina, has planned an outstanding collection of professional development workshops, seminars and training forums led by top professionals and experts in their fields to help you

  • Develop Your Digital Impact
  • Create Innovative Communications
  • Modernize Your Professional Profile.

One featured workshop is a live webinar presented by The Poynter Institute, “Live from St. Petersburg, FL!” Another, the unique Media Marketplace session, will bring participants face-to-face with 30 South Carolina experts from destinations like Greenville and Charleston (and everywhere in between) plus attractions, hotels, golf courses and restaurants to learn more about story opportunities that exist in the state. Also, a limited-seating special workshop entitled “The Business of Writing” is offered for freelance writers and emerging authors who wish to bring a business mindset to their craft.

Nestled into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville combines traditional Southern charm, stunning natural, beauty and contemporary cool to create one of America's hottest emerging destinations and fastest growing cities.

And of course, with MWSC as our hosts, you can expect Carolina hospitality, good food, good friendship, and an array of sightseeing opportunities. The Greenville Marriott is our conference hotel, packed with amenities. With the many pre-conference tours of the Carolina Upcountry and the post-conference tour of the Carolina Lowcountry, you will truly have the opportunity to savor the South Carolina experience from the mountains to the sea.
