2021 Impact Census
Fill out our 2021 CAMEO Annual Impact Census (Yes we are a bit behind and collecting 2021 data.) This is our moment to continue to bring real resources and investment into the sector. In 2022, we successfully advocated for ecosystem investments of $105.5 million, more than a 50% increase from 2021.
We cannot do it without you. Organizations that can out the survey by December 31, 2022 will receive a $100 credit to go towards their membership dues for 2023, and your organizations will also be eligible to participate in a raffle. Organizational heads have received an email with more information.
