Come join us for the first annual Upic Engage - designed to help local United Ways engage, impact, and grow in their community, donors, and United Way network connections. Immerse yourself in two days of sharing best practices, meeting new faces, and celebrating the good work being done today.
 
Guests from local United Ways and thought leaders from around the country - including CEO’s, fundraisers, and business analysts – will share their unique perspectives and biggest lessons learned, along with best practices and technology challenges. We want to interchange ideas, share information, and build relationships with peers across the country. Upic Members are leaders in the United Way network, Upic Engage will bring them together to bring out the best in all of us.
 

Who Should Attend

You should. A wide variety of topics will be covered, of interest to fundraisers, marketing, impact, technologists and executives. Discussions will be strategy driven, with a focus towards how culture, technology and shared services can take your United Way to the next level. While we expect the majority of those in attendance will be Upic Members, we invite the larger United Way community to Engage!
