125 East 31st Street Suite 100, Kansas City, MO 64108



Nonprofit Connect is excited to livestream “The Future is Now -Tech Trends for 2020 and Beyond,” an international volunteer management conference broadcast from Canada. Join us at our office to watch this streaming event, presented by AL!VE, Better Impact and Volunteer Management Professionals of Canada.

Now in its fifth year, this year’s conference topic focuses on understanding emerging and future technologies, and how to utilize them in your organization. How does technology impact our volunteers, programs and agencies, now and in the near and far futures? You’ll enjoy short and to-the-point presentations from recognized experts in the field, followed by moderated discussion with the other presenters. Participants will receive handouts and worksheets, and will connect and network with hundreds of their peers on a face-to-face electronic level at over 40 remote locations across the U.S. and Canada.

Register now as seating is limited. Attendance fee includes materials, lunch and snacks. Pre-registration is required and seating is limited.

    • Becoming a Data-Informed Volunteer Engagement Professional – The future of the volunteer engagement profession lies in better capturing and using data to inform our practice.
