Are you ready to take your nonprofit to the next level? Join us as we build on ten years of impact, this year we’re reinventing Nonprofit Boot Camp, with the goal of helping nonprofit decision-makers learn the keys to promoting innovation, including how to embrace change… and even failure.

Instead of gearing the program toward the needs of organizations, we’re honing in on the key to successful impact and evolution: people.  There’s no shortage of resources for nonprofits interested in best practices, but what about tips and tools designed to make nonprofit leaders more effective?  Join us and learn the keys to work/life balance, finding and sustaining your passion for fundraising, and tapping into the passions of your board, staff, and supporters.

So don’t miss Boot Camp this year.  We’ll have insightful conversations from top speakers that will help you reignite your passions and connection to what drove you to work in the field, and provide ample time for networking with like-minded peers, one-on-one coaching, massage, creativity exercises, meditation and yoga.

The day will be structured in the classic SM4NP format, with Twitter-meets-TED-style sessions in a single track. Leave your laptop and iPad behind, and disconnect with technology for a single day of reflection, inspiration, and mindfulness, and reconnect with yourself, fellow attendees and nature to rediscover why you joined the sector.

Rediscover balance.  Ignite passion.  Gain a new perspective on your work and impact.  All of this and more awaits you at Boot Camp, so sign up now!
