Reigniting Your Vision

Your nonprofit began in a moment of inspiration, a moment when a visionary founder or founders took action to create a better world. But what begins with vision and passion inevitably encounters…reality. Funding cuts, shifts in community needs, increased competition, the temptation of “mission creep,” and even the simple dissipation of human energy are just a few of the hurdles that blunt an organization’s ability to achieve its vision. How do the most successful nonprofits keep their vision fresh and relevant in the face of such change? The 13th Annual Symposium invites you to step out of your current constraints and consider a new arsenal of tools and resources aimed at creating and fostering a sustainable, infectious vision.

Registration will be available soon.
