do you do amazing work—but aren’t sure how to communicate results?
do you know how to spread good news—but need a strategy to tackle tough questions?
do you want to create or refresh an event—but don’t know where to start?

If questions like these resonate with you, meet us at the consult café—an exclusive opportunity for nonprofit professionals like you to connect and engage with communications experts like us. We’ll be popping up at Babson College in Boston on Wednesday, March 6, 2019, to share our know-how about:

• community building
• media relations
• social media
• crisis communications
• marketing
• event planning
• and more!

on the menu
The half-day communications forum will include breakfast, networking time, an opening keynote, a nonprofit panel discussion, roundtable talks and lunch.

apply today
There’s no charge to apply or to participate in the pop-up communications forum. Your organization must meet the following conditions to be considered:

• 501(c3) organization
• < $5 million budget for FY 2017 (reference Form 990, line 18)
• submit application by 01.25.2019

selection schedule
Space is limited to 30 nonprofit organizations. All applicants will be notified via email on Monday, February 4, 2019. If selected, you must register your organization’s representative by Monday, February 11, 2019, or your slot will be forfeited.

selection process
Teams from the three sponsoring partners review all applications, and rank them on a matrix based on the application criteria specified; mission, geography and stakeholder diversity; and reason for participation. We attempt to avoid nonprofits who might directly “compete,” and look also for potential synergies between organizations. The diversity of the 30 selected nonprofits allows for robust conversation, a range of perspectives, and the opportunity for the nonprofits to build new relationships with industry peers.
