The second day of Blackbaud’s 2010 Conference for Nonprofits
at the Gaylord National Hotel & Convention Center in Washington, DC is underway. Things really kick into high gear with lots of sessions and speakers.
The morning begins with the Technology Keynote featuring Allison Fine and Beth Kanter (by way of virtual appearance), authors of The Networked Nonprofit. I think people are really going to like what they have to say.
I’m doing two sessions today. The first is a “Trends in the Nonprofit Industry” session with Roger Craver, founder of DonorTrends and editor of TheAgitator. I really respect Roger and I’m excited about being able to co-present with him. And then I’ll be doing a presentation called “Online Metrics and Benchmarks” that covers lots and lots of areas.
Later in the afternoon there is another keynote session featuring Philippe Cousteau, CEO of EarthEcho International. Philippe will discuss how he aims for a better future and how nonprofits can help by creating partnerships, building awareness, becoming cause champions, and ensuring that we never forget by learning from our mistakes.
