NonProfit University

NPU with website

Our 6th annual NonProfit University (NPU) is right around the corner! Formulated with nonprofits in mind, NPU provides the opportunity for nonprofits from all over the region to come together to share, strengthen, and strategize with each other. The networking opportunities, educational sessions, and tailored tracks are focused on different strategic efforts that can help a nonprofit thrive.

This year is going to the best NPU experience yet, because this year we are going mobile with an event app. Sponsored by Redstone Federal Credit Union and built with CrowdCompass, our team has created an app that will make this year’s experience even more valuable for our attendees, exhibitors,  speakers, and sponsors. The NPU app will include networking, track schedules, social media and much more at your fingertips.  Stay tuned for more information!
