Nonprofit Drupal posts: Join the DrupalCon Nonprofit Summit Tues., July 14th

DrupalCon Global starts on Tuesday, July 14th, 2020, 2-4pm ET/11am-1pm PT. Because everything is online, every summit, session and event within DrupalCon is available under one ticket.

We’ve kept the original theme for the Nonprofit SummitThe Lifecycle of a Drupal Website, because when we see our websites as dynamic, evolving communications tools, we make the most out of them. 

Although the pivot to a virtual event has been hard, it’s given us the opportunity to feature speakers who were not originally planning to attend in-person DrupalCon MN. Many of us are juggling massive changes in our work and personal lives, along with fear and anxiety. We are grateful to our fantastic slate of speakers for taking time to share their experiences and knowledge with this community! 

A full day in front of a screen would be exhausting. So we’ve taken our original schedule and pared it down to two hours of focused, lesson-packed programming, along with space for participants to ask questions.

One of the most valuable aspects of summits is the ability to get to know and network with others that share this fairly niche interest of “nonprofit Drupal”. We will approximate that experience by weaving in ways for us to network with one another via chat, a shared notes doc, and an opt-in directory of people.

Here’s the full schedule. We hope to see you there!
