Due to our concern for your health and safety amid the pandemic, the COSA Steering Committee has made the difficult decision to reschedule the fall 2020 conference to 2021. Mark your calendars for October 11-13, 2021 at the beautiful Grand Hyatt in Vail.
Revisioning Relevance To Become OF/BY/FOR ALL
October 15, 2020 from 1:30-2:30 p.m.
In place of the conference this fall, we're hosting a FREE interactive webinar with keynote speaker Nina Simon. Nina is the Spacemaker & CEO of OF/BY/FOR ALL, a global nonprofit that creates digital tools to help civic and cultural organizations become more inclusive, relevant, and sustainable. Nina will share concrete strategies to help your team re-vision your organization and your relationship with the communities that matter most to your future. You’ll leave the webinar with tools you can use to build a future of, by, and for your community.
The webinar will be recorded and posted on the COSA website for those unable to attend.
