We are very pleased to announce the following keynote speakers for MNA’s signature event:

Lois Gibbs, Executive Director, Center for Health, Environment, and Justice – Known as the "Mother of Superfund" to many, Lois became a household name in the late 70’s as a result of the Love Canal saga in New York. As one person who continues to make a profound difference in communities across America, Lois will share her perspectives on our conference theme of "Vision and Voice" and the notion that the power of many can change the world.

Mike McGrath, Attorney General, State of Montana – Across the country, state regulators and enforcement officials are increasingly working closely with the nonprofit sector to improve accountability, oversight, and dissemination of best practices. Attorney General McGrath will provide his thoughts on the state of the nonprofit sector and future plans for the AG’s work interfacing with the charitable sector in Montana.

Rick Cohen, Executive Director, National Committee for Responsive Philanthropy – A national voice for responsible grant making in the foundation community, Rick will provide insight into the "Philanthropic Divide" and lead a panel discussion of several regional and national foundation leaders.
