The second year of a reinvented RECHARGE 2.0 Conference will focus on professional development knowledge-sharing in an interactive format.

Conference session topics include IHS’ annual meeting, managing leadership stress, building inter-agency collaborations, improving team performance, legal and marketing issues and more.

“We recognize that our nonprofit community deals with a wide array of issues, so presenting a well-rounded conference with actionable tools and takeaways that can be applied to the day-to-day operations of a nonprofit organization was important in considering programming for this year's conference.” said Jason Jordan, Director of Communications and Member Services. “We want our attendees to walk away feeling like they can conquer any problem in their field of work.”
