It's a Wrap!

Thank you for attending our largest conferene yet! We were inspired by David Grant, author of The Social Profit Handbook, and Teresa Younger, CEO and President of the Ms. Foundation for Women; networked with attendees from regional associations and other national colleague organizations; and shared knowledge in sessions on: 

  • Maximizing the learning potential of your programs
  • Gathering data & trends on philanthropy
  • Collaborations in the field
  • Member engagement
  • Diversity, equity, inclusion work & RA leadership role
  • The future of digital engagement for associations
  • Philanthropic investing for social innovation
