amplify 2021 agenda
This year we are going hybrid.
This year, we have decided to hold a hybrid event to accommodate the growing interest in Amplify while keeping people safe and adhering to local COVID guidelines. This year, we will also be charging a small ticket fee. All proceeds from ticket sales will be used to support Amplify 2022. A small amount of scholarships tickets will be made available. Contact lpalacios@kauffman.org for scholarship info.
The virtual event will be open to all those that want to attend and features a streamlined schedule to make it easier for folks to participate.
