Running a holiday sale or weekly special? Definitely promote it here to get customers excited about getting a sweet deal.

Why is this Boot Camp so important?

Funding is competitive. Rules and regulations are being more stringently enforced. Staff time and energy are stretched more than ever.

By being aware of tools and processes that streamline operations and compliance, there is more time and energy to focus on the mission.

This is a Boot Camp, not a panel discussion. 

These are the hard lessons typically learned from experience with painful consequences. 

This Boot Camp features a set of strategically compiled topics with experts who know how to explain the sometimes-complicated material in terms and processes most easy to understand. That is what sets this event apart from all other training.

Can I participate as a vendor to nonprofits?

Absolutely! People and businesses providing services, products, or other support to nonprofits may participate in the Beyond the Basics Nonprofit Boot Camp Vendors Fair. From 12:30 -2 pm, vendors can connect with area nonprofits to partner with valuable services, products, or other collaborations. The fee is $15 with limited space offered on a first come-first served basis. Registration is required.
