We are pleased to announce the program schedule for this year’sNew York Nonprofit Conference and invite you to attend.
We know how important it is to build powerful, action-based messages for your donors. As times change and your donors become harder to find and reach, you almost have to “defy gravity” just to get your message through. This year’s conference, Defying Gravity —Gaining Momentum in Challenging Times, is designed to help you do what seems like the impossible—maximize your communications to break through the clutter and reach your donors with the right message, at the right time.
The two-day event features two keynote speakers who are sure to inspire you, as well as 25 workshop sessions jam-packed with the best ideas and latest trends from technology fundraising, building donor loyalty, and industry trends from the basics to mayor planned giving strategies. In addition, there will be roundtable discussions where you will be able to exchange ideas and thoughts on conference topics and common challenges with your peers.
New for 2006 are special sessions Mining Donor Behavior to Improve Fundraising Results for colleges and universities, andNonprofit Professional Exchange, where you and your fellow nonprofit peers will be able to discuss user-specific issues and viable solutions in an interactive environment.
Plus, we are pleased to invite you to join us for a refreshing and unforgettable Networking Reception at theTuscan Square located right next to Rockefeller Center. It’s a great opportunity to catch up with your friends, make new contacts, and enjoy some downtime after an intense and productive day of learning.
We hope to see you there!
