#SOA18 is moving to Coltrane Systems

In our mission statement we illustrate that “YNPN St. Louis is committed to creating an environment in which nonprofit professionals are fully supported and valued.” To truly create this environment in the vision of excellence we must be accommodating and inclusive to all members, patrons, and peers.

YNPN St. Louis recently reserved a non-ADA compliant space for its annual Standing Ovation Awards celebration. We recognize that without providing an ADA compliant venue for The Standing Ovation Awards that we are not truly serving our members, patrons, and peers through the aforementioned mission. We give our heartfelt apologies to those impacted by our decision, and we want to make it right. It is in the spirit of accountability and inclusivity that YNPN St. Louis will now host The Standing Ovation Awards to Coltrane Systems.

We are deeply grateful for DK Solution’s support throughout the initial planning and development of The Standing Ovation Awards, and though we will host The Standing Ovation Awards in a new space, we look forward to continuing our meaningful partnership. DK Solutions is an inspirational changemaker in the St. Louis region. Through consulting, coaching, workshop and seminar programming, and a myriad of other resources, they continue to shape the St. Louis nonprofit, business, and entrepreneurial sectors for the better. We are honored to recognize them as a lead sponsor of The Standing Ovation Awards.

Among our twelve finalists for The Standing Ovation Awards are some of St. Louis’ finest professionals, students, mentors, and organizations. If these twelve #NonprofitUnicorns are any indication of the spectacular work unfolding across this city, we are in great hands. Please join us on September 20th at Coltrane Systems so we can give them the Standing O they deserve.
