By popular demand, we’ve added another webinar on virtual events with Kansas City nonprofit leaders. This time, we’re talking to organizations who made the jump and have held a virtual event in the last three months. Join us to hear what they learned, what went well (and maybe what didn’t!) and how their path forward from a virtual event may be different than a traditional one.
