Out of an abundance of safety, we chose to postpone our in-person conference scheduled to take place in Las Vegas this fall. Instead, we are excited to offer the Family Promise Virtual Innovation Summit – an experience you will not want to miss! It will take place on Sept 30 and Oct 1 from 1:00 PM – 6:00     PM     EDT     both days. There will be    a special fun event planned at 6:00 PM EDT on the first evening.

All board, staff, and volunteers are welcome to attend. Throughout the two days, you will hear two keynote speeches from the Family Promise National CEO, Claas Ehlers, and renowned author, activist, and speaker,     Shane Claiborne. We will also be joined by members of the     Family Promise Guest Advisory Council     to hear a plenary discussion, “Coming From a Place of Yes”.

You can expect workshops covering topics like Trauma Informed Care, Taking Fundraising to the Next Level, Virtual Board Recruitment, Prepping Your 2021 Communications Plan, Emergency Preparedness, The Future Begins at Home Programs, Diversity & Equity Inclusion and Structural Racism, and other timely and relevant topics. You’ll hear from Affiliate leaders, National team members, and outside experts.

The Innovation Summit is free to all, and will take place via Zoom. If you have not used Zoom before, we recommend downloading it and familiarizing yourself with joining a meeting ahead of time. Please complete the registration to receive relevant attendance information.
