    “This is the tenth year for Securing the Future and we have a stellar program planned,” said Laurie Brinkman, program manger at the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. "We always host national speakers who bring innovative ideas to our nonprofit members, however, this year we are also hosting a panel of celebrity speakers who will teach attendees how to raise their nonprofit profile by collaborating with 'high-status' partnerships. This is a not-to-miss conference!"
