Kansas City, Mo. – Our communities are recovering from the pandemic, social tensions and the uncertainty of the last year. More than 700,000 nonprofit jobs were lost and thousands of social sector organizations will never reopen. Now more than ever, the nonprofit sector must evolve if it’s going to address these challenges. Our past “normal” is no longer good enough!

Social sector leaders are invited to take part in Elevate 2022 to reflect on what we’ve learned so we can rebuild a world better than it was before. 

Elevate, a three-day virtual conference, will be hosted February 23-25, 2022. Early-bird registration is now open at a rate of $75 and will be available until February 1, 2022. Registration will increase to $100 on February 2, 2022.

“Elevate is a critical way we meet our mission,” said Susan Tomlinson Schmidt, President of the Nonprofit Leadership Alliance. “This annual event lets us reach a wide range of nonprofit professionals all in different phases of their careers. Our impact on the quality of the nonprofit workforce is the reason we gather the top thinkers in the most critical areas of practice for our organizations.”
