Join over 1,200 practitioners, thought leaders, and industry experts this September to get new ideas and discover new solutions to the challenges facing you, your organization, and the relief and development sector. We are currently evaluating how to best structure this event in light of the coronavirus outbreak. We will be updating this page and informing our members once we have an idea of how to best create the robust learning and networking experience that is OpEx DC every year, while keeping everyone safe.


Thriving in our current operating environment will require us to work together to share what we have learned, to ask the hard questions, and to innovate. That’s why this year’s conference will focus on the theme The Spirit of Collective Action, showcasing examples of what happens when people work together, and offering opportunities for attendees to workshop solutions in real-time. We need each other's input and knowledge sharing now more than ever!


We are currently accpeting session nominations for OpEx DC 2020. There will be a note on the session submission form about whether or not you would be willing to offer this session remotely. We are seeking sessions that:


  • Help others achieve excellence in their work, overcome a challenge, prepare for the future
  • Share organizational best practices
  • Showcase the positive impact of integrating operations areas across functions.
