Many people go to conferences every year for work or in support of causes they are passionate about. Conferences offer great opportunities to network and learn strategies to move a cause forward. But conferences can also be overwhelming, with overlapping session schedules and multiple locations, not to mention what to do around town on those off hours.
Many conference hosts have begun to offer their participants online options for navigating all these details. But if an organization would like to make this available, who’s going to build it and do they really have to “reinvent the wheel”, so to speak?

When many of us hear the invitation to “Walk Across America,” we assume it’s for someone else. We envision a person all sinew and muscle, wearing shorts and a tank-top, glistening in the sun. We don’t see a person who might be in decent shape, but certainly not running marathons or biking 20 miles a day. The entire concept feels fun, but very much out of reach to most of us.
That particular challenge is so far beyond the capabilities of most of us, that it would be folly, and maybe even dangerous, to attempt it.
