Creating Connections

This conference is about being strongest when we collaborate with others.

We hope that RMPI will inspire you to take advantage of opportunities for true connection and collaboration in your work. Just like a puzzle only becomes a complete picture by connecting individual pieces together, so too can you only realize your full potential through the collaboration of a network of individuals and organizations.

Keynote Speaker - Vu Le
This year’s keynote address will challenge us to break down the barriers that prevent us from making real change in the world. Be prepared for an inspiring, thought-provoking presentation that will quite possibly infuriate you while also making you laugh out loud.


Vu Le writes the popular Nonprofit AF blog. Known for his sense of humor and irreverence, Vu is a writer, speaker, vegan, Pisces, and the ED of Rainier Valley Corps. Vu’s passion to make the world better, combined with a low Law School Admission Test score, drove him into the field of nonprofit work, where he learned that we should take the work seriously, but not ourselves.
