One Day Summit: 
An Introduction to Impact Measurement

November 12, 2019

Chicago, IL

In conjunction with Upswell Chicago

The importance of measuring and understanding impact in CSR is well established. ACCP wants to make sure you are up-to-date with the latest information and skills on measuring impact, so join us November 12th for our special One Day Summit on Impact Measurement.

ACCP is holding this Summit as a pre-convening to the high-energy Upswell Chicago conference. Please join us on the 12th, and then plan to stay November 13-15th to join change-makers of all kinds at Upswell, presented by Independent Sector and also being held this year at the Hilton Chicago.

ACCP’s One Day Summit will focus on providing attendees with a greater understanding of where the field of impact measurement currently stands, as well as an overview of impact measurement as a process. You’ll come away with new strategies for implementing and managing your own impact programs.
