Our inaugural virtual Nonprofit Conference: Reimagine was a huge success! We had more than 1,132 page visits and over 400 live view attendees who gathered to develop, grow, and network together on March 10th and 11th. Of these viewers, 375 engaged in our polls and quizzes and interacted with our speakers in a live Q&A!
