The Providers’ Council welcomes a workshop presentation proposal from you or your staff for our 45th Annual Convention & Expo: Speak Up For Equity. This event is the largest of its kind in New England, with nearly 1,200 people from nonprofit human services providers, businesses and state agencies expected to attend.

6.04.20 update: The Providers' Council has decided to move our annual Convention & Expo to an online format. This event will take place within the week of October 26th, and more details are forthcoming. You will have the ability to deliver your workshop virtually, and you'll be able to interact with learners and share your screen during the session.

Convention workshops are 90 minutes long and are generally attended by 20 to 100 convention participants from across all agency positions.
