Drupal Association blog: DrupalCon Portland 2024: The Nonprofit Summit Agenda is here!

I am pleased to share the schedule for the upcoming 2024 DrupalCon Nonprofit Summit. There is a special rate ($395.00) for nonprofit org staff, and those who are affiliated with nonprofits, and the summit is included free with your ticket! You can register here.

Relying on community feedback and past experience, we put together an agenda that we hope encompasses the spirit of open source camaraderie and will provide nourishment for the mind and soul. We tried to balance the technical with the strategy and networking with expertise. We look forward to seeing you there.
