Want to Contribute Your Skills to Nonprofit Dreamin?

Are you committed to helping nonprofit organizations #domoregood? But you need some inspiration on what topics might be helpful or to get your creative juices flowing, before our Call for Speakers deadline? (it’s end of Saturday, 7th November by the way!)

Great session submissions are coming in all the time, and the deadline is just a couple days away, but we really want as many great session submissions as we can get. The Nonprofit Dreamin Content Team has come up with a great list of ideas to help you help us make the best event possible. If you need ideas start with one of these and make it your own or be truly innovative and of course feel free to share something we haven’t even considered.

The goal of all the content at Nonprofit Dreamin is to provide learning that attendees can take back to their nonprofit, implement quickly, and see the results in the impact they are making.

Our team will be following up with attendees to measure how effectively they are able to use the knowledge from the conference. Wherever your passion lies, whether it is Einstein Search or updating picklist values to be diverse and inclusive or implementing Outbound Funds, you can make the world a better place by presenting at Nonprofit Dreamin.
