Axelson Center Symposium 2011

2011 Axelson Symposium

The Twelfth Annual Symposium for Nonprofit Professionals was a great success!

We'd like to thank all those who attended as speakers, sponsors, volunteers, and participants. Our feedback shows that you found our sessions valuable, the networking critical, and the new venue very hospitable. Information about the 13th Annual Symposium for Nonprofit Professionals and Volunteers in 2012 will be announced this fall.

Information and materials about the 2011 Symposium:

  • The Symposium was held at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza.
  • Strategies for Excelling in a Fast-Changing World
    Movement is afoot. New technologies, changing funding patterns, demographic shifts and other major trends are profoundly impacting the work in our sector. Through strategy-level discussions and practically-focused “mini” workshops, the 12th Annual Symposium employed a cutting-edge approach to trend watching. Major trends were considered from the perspective of key stakeholder groups with strategies offered at every level.
