Registration Rates and Information

IMAGINE | 2014 Indepent Sector National Conference | November 16-18 Seattle, Washington

What do you look for in a conference?  Plenary programs that illuminate the big picture and inspire action? Breakout sessions that zero in on arduous issues of strategic importance? At the 2014 National Conference in Seattle you’ll find both, in pre-conference sessions targeted to emerging leaders and policy pros, and a full conference roster of cutting-edge content for professionals and chief executives across the nonprofit and philanthropic community.

Bring a colleague! Get a $50 team discount on the second and all additional registrations when you register two or more staff from the same organization. The $50 team discount will be automatically deducted from the above rates at the time of online registration. (Does not apply to one-day only rates or pre-conference programs.) 

Registration opens April 1. See our registration rate information below, including details on registrant categories and policies.
