Time to Reboot, Revise, Revitalize

We are all driven to make our communities a better place and yet our industry is currently facing a burnout crisis. The nonprofit industry has a voluntary turnover rate of 19% which is higher than the industry average of 12%*. To continue to meet the rising demands of our missions – it’s time to reboot, revise and revitalize our organizations and ourselves starting with building organizational awareness.

The summit will feature keynotes from industry thought leaders, a panel presentation from sector innovators, roundtable discussions led by prominent local philanthropic professionals, and a networking happy hour so participants can connect with old friends and make new connections.

*Society for Human Resource Management


The Summit will be back in-person for the first time since 2019. Lunch is included.

Following the Summit will be an in-person no-host happy hour from 3:00-5:00pm at the same location.
