We'll offer over 20 sessions, 60 min long. Make your own schedule based on the sessions you are most interested in.  Additionally, there will be 3 special plenary sessions for all conference attendees. There will also be a networking reception on the first night for all conference attendees.

OpEx East Africa 2019

OpEx East Africa: Growing Trust for Greater Impact took place in Kampala, Uganda on March 27-28, 2019 (with a pre-conference training day on March 26!). This two-day event focused on enhancing trust and expertise for greater impact in the day-to-day work of NPO operations professionals. Much like Humentum's Annual Conference in Washington, DC, the sessions covered topics across NGO operational areas: finance, grants & contracts, HR & learning, project & program management, and more.
