5 Reasons You Don't Want to Miss This P2P Conference
We get it—there are a ton of conferences out there. It's impossible to make it to all of them, unless your job title is Professional Conference Go-er, or something. And even then, you'd need to hire an Associate Conference Go-er to keep up. There are that many. But, trust us, if you're a nonprofit professional whose work is even remotely related to peer-to-peer fundraising, you don't want to miss the NonProfit PRO P2P: Redefining Peer to Peer Conference, Oct. 1 in Baltimore. Why? Five reasons.
1. The format. One day (8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) and small by design—just you and 100 of your colleagues from organizations including Humane Society of the United States, American Hospital Association, Save the Children, Cancer Research Institute and more. The format is designed to spark real discussion, real idea-sharing and real connections, without sacrificing your valuable time. When the day's over, you can get back to work. Minimal time out of the office. Maximum time to apply everything you learned.
2. The lineup. Some of the brightest minds in P2P presenting on some of the most pressing, most talked-about, most cutting-edge issues in P2P fundraising—all on one stage. No encyclopedia-sized program guide. No confusing multi-track scavenger hunt to find the next speaker. Presenters include Project HOPE, ALS Association, MD Anderson Cancer Center, National Kidney Foundation, Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults and a host of expert consultants.
3. The networking. We touched on it above, but the Redefining Peer to Peer Conference is all about giving you the most opportunities to learn from your peers. With a pre-conference happy hour the evening before the event, multiple fast breaks, an hour-long roundtable session, and a complimentary breakfast, lunch and post-event happy hour, there's plenty of chances to meet new people and build long-term professional connections (or just enjoy a few drinks).
4. The location. Held in Baltimore, the conference is central to Washington, D.C., New York, Philadelphia and other nonprofit hotspots on the East Coast. Also, it's right on the Inner Harbor, which means easy access to Baltimore's fantastic waterfront attractions—the National Aquarium, the Maryland Science Center, and roughly a gazillion pubs and restaurants—if you want to extend your trip.
5. The crab. We're going to eat so much crab. You can't go to Baltimore and not. It's basically the law.
We hope to see you there!
