Let’s Get To Work

The purpose of this conference is to offer a creative space where nonprofit communications professionals can “get the tools to get to work.” It’s a mix of practical and inspiration, with a dash of roll-up-your-sleeves and get a little dirty thrown in for good measure.

When the team started planning Create Good 2017, we had no idea that our country would face so many changes in the coming years. The nonprofit sector needs a good dose of unity and action to see us through the changes. It’s in that spirit that we selected this year’s speakers and topics.

By attending this conference, you’ll hear from the people on the front lines that are influencing social change. You’ll learn from insights, strategies, and tactics that have created successful campaigns and movements. You’ll get the tools to “get to work” on Wednesday once you return to your desk.

So get your ticket and let’s do work!

Meet the

Speakers

We are excited to announce this year’s list of movement makers, rabble-rousers, and just plain inspiring folks making change happen.
