ARNOVA's 50th Annual Conference

As the leading organization supporting research and education in the fields of voluntary action, philanthropy, nonprofit management, and civil society, ARNOVA stages this public conference each November. The conference is designed to create a public conversation on, as well as opportunities for presenting research about, pressing issues and vital opportunities facing the voluntary or nonprofit sector. It is both a showcase for the best and most current research, as well as a seed bed from which new research is born. Given the global pandemic, and ongoing civil unrest in the U.S. and abroad, there has never been a better time for third sector researchers, practitioners, civil society leaders, and other change-makers to come together to talk about what we know and what we still need to learn.


More than 800 researchers, teachers and leaders from the field gather at the Annual Conference. Over recent decades, the public conversation at our conference has evolved to address new developments in our field(s), including social entrepreneurship, social economy and all aspects of civil society, as well as to meet the needs of those who study and lead “the social sector.” ARNOVA’s Annual Conference is the largest gathering held regularly anywhere devoted to these matters, and this year’s conference is likely to be our most exciting ever, specifically because we will have active participation across the globe to celebrate the 50th years of ARNOVA.
