November 17-19—45th Annual ARNOVA Annual Conference was held in Washington, D.C. This is the largest and most significant gathering of leaders and scholars of the nonprofit sector and philanthropy held every year. The Lilly Family School of Philanthropy was a sponsor.
The theme this year was Nonprofits, Philanthropy, and Government: Policy and Partnerships in an Era of Change. The conference explored these questions, especially in relation to policy and partnerships with government. Though widely used labels like nongovernmental organization (NGO), the third sector, and the independent sector connote separation from government, the public sector is intimately linked to the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors.
School attendees included:
Jacquie Ackerman, Lehn Benjamin, Jon Bergdoll, Dwight Burlingame, Chelsea Clark, Tyrone Freeman, Katie Herrold, Sevda Kilicalp, David King, Lukia Li, Ji Ma, Deb Mesch, Una Osili, Amir Pasic, Patrick Rooney, Rich Steinberg, and Greg Witkowski

Walker, 1867-1919."
