Share your Ideas at Elevate 2021!

You are a changemaker so we want to hear from you.

The nonprofit sector is rapidly evolving to tackle society’s most pressing issues. As a CNP learner, you are working to advance the sector’s impact. This year’s virtual Ideas Forum provides a platform for you to share your research and discuss important trends and innovations that address society’s challenges.

Showcase your key findings during Elevate 2021, taking place on February 24-26. Presentations will be recorded and submitted before Elevate 2021. All Elevate attendees will have access to the Ideas Forum videos during the conference and the top 3 ranking submissions from each category will participate in live Q&A sessions.
