Annual Collaborative Conference

We’re going virtual! Join conference partners Alliance for Nonprofit Resources (ANR), the Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership (GPNP), PANO, and Villanova University for our first-ever digital conference experience. Will it be the same as our annual in-person gathering? Probably not. Will we still challenge ourselves and each other to dig deep, get vulnerable, expand our horizons, and grow together? You bet. Will we also have fun while we learn from each other and from expert speakers? We think so! Learn more about our plans for Reimagining Together, coming to a computer near you in October 2020.
