A panel of Northeast Ohio non-profit leaders will come together this week to swap stories and share insights about connecting in new and different ways that just doesn't make the daily news.

Join us to learn how non-profit organizations are responding to change in a shifting, networked world. We'll share best practices to strengthen connections in and out of organizations. You’ll hear solutions to accelerate response time to unforeseen opportunities.

Let's spread the word about innovations going on in Northeast Ohio. Bring your stories and questions for regional leaders in a panel presentation that combines cutting edge research updates with practitioner working know-how.
