About the Conference

Each year our team, who is spread out across the nation, takes time to gather as a family inviting our nonprofit clients and friends to join us as we learn and reconnect. Together, we learn about trends in giving, tricks of the trade to make us more successful in our work, and get re-motivated to do our very best – after all, what we do matters so much for our supporters and organizations!

Agenda & Featured Speakers

We strive to provide content that is current, relevant and much-desired!  Every year, we hone in on attendee feedback to fine-tune the agenda, and invite our Rockstar clients to highlight and share their successful strategies.
