CHiPTalks Non Profit Operating $

I'm proud to announce that CHiPTalks is now a federally recognized 501(c)3 non profit.  What does this mean? Well, it's perfect timing! This is the time of year you may be looking for a new charity to gift some of your hard earned money and our community conversation s could use some Christmas spirit for the year ahead.  And now you can give more --and write it off on your taxes! 

And i want to take this opportunity to tell you there will be needed changes to our format.  Talks will get shorter--I promise--starting with my own!  And we'll be facilitating discussion after each.  So come ready to talk!

With your gift we'll continue to bring great stories and unique, fun, upflifting and thought-provoking speakers to the stage.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everybody! 
We look forward to seeing you in January.
