  • LAB #1 (in-person): Oct. 19 / 8:30am-1pm (location TBA, breakfast + lunch provided)
  • Nonprofit is a Tax Status, Not a Business Model
  • LAB #2 (virtual): Nov. 2 / 10am-12pm

Be sure to save the dates on your calendar and REGISTER YOUR TEAM TODAY FOR THE FIRST SESSION ON 10/19.

Plus…for those organizations that want to delve deeper into the work and who have fully participated in the Learning Labs, there will be an opportunity to advance to the next phase of the initiative.
