This year’s Nonprofit Boot Camp conference is going to be different from what we’re used to – and that’s a good thing. As a long-time partner of the conference’s organizer, Social Media for Nonprofits, we appreciate how important (and difficult) it can be to honestly evaluate a project and make necessary changes. But we think the changes made to Boot Camp this year are all awesome.
In general, the focus will shift away from organization-specific content, to provide programming for individuals in the organization. Top speakers will share insights and tools that help social change leaders rediscover balance, gain a new perspective, and think differently about their work.
Boot Camp takes place in Silicon Valley on June 10th, and San Francisco on October 2nd. But by following the hashtag #npbc14, anyone can learn from the great discussions that will happen, no matter where you’re located.
Ask the Experts: One-On-One Coaching Presented by VolunteerMatch

Mindfulness, Balance and Clarity!
There will be time and space in the programming to talk about balance, mindfulness, and gaining clarity. It has significant benefits for your health, efficacy in your work and your ability to truly meet your mission. Megan Keane, Membership Director of NTEN and an avid Yogi, will lead us all into thinking about embracing failure, collaboration, creativity and more.
