Staying Inspired at General Assembly 2016

What a week! We have just come back from YMCA General Assembly 2016 in Kansas City, MO and we are overwhelmed with excitement and inspiration.

Keynote speaker Randi Zuckerberg kicked off Thursday on a motivating note. Her passion for solving complicated problems and approaching solutions online was the perfect way to start the conference.

In addition, our interactive booth was buzzing with activity.

We asked people to share their vision for the future of the YMCA on a sticker and place it on the booth. Learning about the stories and goals on the exhibitor floor of what YMCAs across the country are doing was incredibly moving. There were several clear trends that emerged: community impact, inspiring people to do more and ensuring that YMCAs are equipped to make those passions and impact a reality.

We were so inspired by the stories we heard and the people we met. We hope that collectively we can continue to help our friends at the YMCA use data to keep giving and keep growing.
