What is SURGE?
SURGE is a virtual conference from We create space and learning opportunities for those who operate and manage the social and professional organizations that bring people together to solve problems, seek education, celebrate shared passions and grow their careers.
How does it work?
We'll offer multiple sessions of interviews, panel discussions and workshops over three days. These sessions will be pre-recorded videos you can watch alongside other professionals. While you'll be able to log in from the comfort of your own home, you'll still be able to digitally interact using chat functionality and other tools. And for the first time, we'll re-air SURGE sessions twice each day, giving attendees from around the world the chance to log-in and learn from each other.

Anyone can attend. All you need is an email address and a desire to learn!
What is asked of speakers?
Great ideas, and a little bit of time! You will need to be available for filming your panel discussion or interview, which does mean some coordination with your fellow panelists or interview leaders. Please note that a laptop or phone with video capabilities will be required for this. Filming will take place the weeks of April 13 and April 20. We also ask that you plan to attend at least one of the two times your session airs so you can join the vibrant conversation around your video!
