Great conference sessions…

  • Focus on topics that are relevant and important to the nonprofit staff, board members and volunteers who attend the DSAIA Conference.
  • Are not one-size-fits-all! The nonprofit sector is incredibly diverse; an outstanding presentation identifies a particular audience and connects that audience with the content they want and need.
  • Are based on a clear, well-defined focus. Make sure that attendees feel they’ve learned what they came to learn.
  • Provide solid, real-world information that attendees can put to use in their own organizations right away.
  • Are engaging, interactive, and built to keep attendees actively learning.
