2010 Civil Society Congres

By on May 20, 2010


I am in the Netherlands speaking at the 2010 Civil Society Congres today. This is one of the major not-for-profit conferences in Europe.

There are two different sessions that I will be presenting today:

Blackbaud’s RLC division in Netherlands is one of the sponsors of the event and many of our customers will be present. I’m looking forward to covering a variety of topics with them.

Below are my slides from the Philanthropy 2.0 Masterclass and you can get a copy of Blackbaud’s 2009 European State of the Not-for-Profit Industry survey here.
