About ELEVATE Northeast Events and Education
Currently in the process of becoming a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, ELEVATE Northeast Events and Education was created to support the regional industry's need for workforce and community education, advocacy and networking in a professional and inviting atmosphere.
