If you're in the nonprofit or community-building arena, you may want to consider attending a conference that's being held in person for the first time this year.
That's because the annual Princeton Community Works conference, which has traditionally been held in person, is being held online for the first time this year, thanks to the Covid-19 virus, the Star-Ledger reports.
"Not because it public health concerns demand it, but because the virtual venue has allowed the event to become a bigger, more inclusive, and wider-reaching gathering," says conference founder Marge Smith.
The three-day event, which runs from Jan. 30 through Feb. 1, will feature 25 online workshops and 30 minutes in-person sessions, as well as the conference keynote, which will be delivered by the Trenton Central High School Band.
The $20 registration fee allows attendees to attend as many workshops as they want.
"The heart of the conference based on that each person has the capacity to help build their community," Smith tells the Star-Ledger.
"More importantly, our top-level speakers offer practical and proven strategies for empowering nonprofits of all sizes and potential."
