All Destination Imagination (DI) volunteers of past, present, and future are invited to attend IGNITE 2023—a virtual leadership conference—online June 26-30! Registration is now open.

IGNITE 2023 is a community-building event for DI volunteers and leadership from around the world. Training, networking, and socializing with your fellow DI enthusiasts will all be part of the experience in this week-long virtual event. Our goal is that IGNITE attendees will leave the conference empowered with new information and inspired with ideas to bring to their Affiliates and teams.

This year’s event will feature presentations on topics to help prepare your Affiliate for the 23-24 season and plenty of time to network with the DI community!

IGNITE 2023 will be a 100% virtual event, and the registration fee is pay-what-you-can. We sincerely appreciate any and all amounts!

5 days of Zoom presentations featuring guest speakers and DIHQ staff.

Can’t attend live? No problem! All presentations will be recorded and available on the IGNITE website. Click here to register today.

In an effort to make IGNITE 2023 accessible to as many of our volunteers as possible, registration is open on a Pay-What-You-Can basis. (Yes, really!) Just select the amount you’d like to contribute when you register—even if that amount needs to be $0. Anything you are able to give will help us cover event expenses and contribute to the growth and stability of Destination Imagination.
