The Points of Light Conference is an event that we all look forward to attending, to connect with peers and hear innovative solutions in driving transformative change. Today, the health of our global community is in a fragile state. Partners from around the world, and even organizations like ours, are feeling the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic. The work to flatten the curve is imperative to the health and wellbeing of our communities and is forcing many organizations to alter plans for the immediate future.
In March, we released a survey to gain insights about what would be most important and of highest value in transitioning to an online experience. The response was overwhelming and very informative. Coupled with feedback from our partners and taking into consideration the continued impact of COVID-19, we have made the decision to pivot from an in-person convening to an online experience.
The 2020 Points of Light Conference Digital Community will offer relevant and timely content, ways to engage with presenters and each other, and a new on-demand platform for knowledge sharing and community building that will live beyond the conference as a resource for the sector.
Thanks to the generous support of sponsors and Points of Light’s own investment, current registrants of the conference will be given early access to register for the online experience. There are a number of details to work out over the next several weeks, including opening the conference to new registrants. An invitation to register for complimentary access to the digital community will follow soon. Sign up for our conference newsletter to be the first to know when registration is open! For more questions, please see the FAQ page of our website.
We appreciate your continued interest in Points of Light and look forward to welcoming you to the conference experience and to a community that will live beyond the conference as an ongoing and dynamic community for the sector.
