Are you ready to take your nonprofit to the next level? Building on ten years of impact, this year we're reinventing Nonprofit Boot Camp, with the goal of helping nonprofit decision-makers learn how to embrace change, failure and innovation.

We are shifting our focus in programming from the organization specific content to the individuals in the organization. Most of the issues and topics that we have sought to address in the past have an abundance of books, blogs, and podcasts available in the free domain. In addition to that, you could pay a consultant a little bit or more, depending on your needs and budget to help you with most of the things, however, you couldn't pay someone to be passionate for you about your job or to reignite and reconnect you with the reasons why you work in this sector. We hope to have some conversations, present some speakers that will get you to reflect on those and also to create a space for that in your day with other like-minded folks who are also wrestling with some of the same things. 

Join us as top speakers share insights and tools that help social change leaders rediscover balance, gain a new perspective, and think differently about their work. The day will be structured in the classic Social Media for Nonprofits format with Twitter meets TED style sessions in a single track. Leave your laptop, iPad and more behind, join us to disconnect with technology for a day of reflection, inspiration, motivation, mindfulness and reconnect with yourself, fellow attendees and nature to rediscover why you joined the sector.

So don’t miss Nonprofit Boot Camp! Register now to attend and looking forward to having you join us as we reinvent Nonprofit Boot Camp, and seek to do the same for the hundreds of nonprofits we serve. Check out the various elements of Bootcamp designed to get you the tactical information you need, and get some rejuvenation!
