News Early-bird registration now open for 44th Annual Convention: Everyone Counts.

Early-bird registration is open for our 44th Annual Convention & Expo: Everyone Counts., taking place Monday, October 7 at the Marriott Copley Place Hotel in Boston. Come and join your friends, colleagues, business partners and volunteers to celebrate the human services community at the sector’s largest convening in the Northeast! Early-bird discounts end Aug. 23, so register online today!

Highlights of this year’s event include:

  • Keynote speaker Spencer West, a motivational speaker for social change. West — a double amputee — will discuss all he has been able to accomplish in his life. Discussing how to “redefine possible,” West will deliver an inspiring message and discuss climbing Mount Kilimanjaro using his hands and wheelchair.
  • Awards, more awards and contests! Celebrate staff, volunteers, leaders and partners who have helped strengthen the human services sector over the past year, vote for the Broadcast Your Love winner and play Expo Bingo.
  • Thirty-six informative workshops for professionals of all levels and in all subsectors of human services. Many of the sessions qualify for CEUs, and with suggested tracks for a number of different job descriptions, there’s something for everyone!
  • Nearly 80 exhibitors who can provide innovative and cost-effective products and services your organization uses every day. A few exhibit, sponsorship and advertising opportunities are still available. Email Christina Broughton at

We are deeply appreciative to USI Insurance Services and Citizens Bank for continuing to sponsor the convention at the Diamond Level this year, solidifying their commitment to the community-based human services sector. And many thanks to Justice Resource Institute for being a Platinum Level sponsor.

Register today! Everyone who registers by Aug. 23 will be entered into a drawing for exciting early-bird registration prizes, including a complimentary overnight stay and brunch at the Marriott Copley Place Hotel and Providers’ Council training registrations! After Aug. 23, registration rates will increase from $115/person to $130/person for members and from $170/person to $200/person for non-members.

Organizations that send groups to the convention also receive additional discounts, that can be combined with the early-bird rates. Take an additional 10 percent off your total registration costs by bringing 10 to 19 people and 20 percent off your total for 20 or more people.
