As I frantically race from event to event, checking my schedule, checking my email, stressing I've missed something, and—"Oh hey there! Good to see you too!"—now waving and smiling brightly, as I pray my outward appearance doesn't belie my inward turmoil at wanting—needing—to be everywhere all the time … I stop and breathe. WHEW! That is a lot of conferences!
The nonprofit world is rife with educational and networking opportunities. And with our industry growing and changing so much, at such incredible speed, how can one keep up? When planning our events this year, our short list to work around was 36 events. Thirty-six! And those were only the easily identifiable ones from less than a handful of major associations.

We think it's the high-quality content plus casual atmosphere. We keep these to approximately 100-150 people and make sure to provide the most interaction possible, for the most information sharing available.
