See You in Philly!

 

I couldn't help but laugh at the Facebook meme that was going around last month that said, "I don't want to brag or anything, but I survived the end of the world like five times."

Or something like that. You get the idea.

My Editor's Note in the January issue talks about the end-of-the-world hoopla. It also announces an exciting, new FundRaising Success event — the Engage Conference, our first-ever live, in-person event. It takes place in Philadelphia on May 9 (with a separate pre-conference workshop the day before).

Engage focuses on nonprofits that made the leap to powerhouse organizations, have proven themselves to be flawless stewards, and earned the trust and hearts of their donors. It features no-nonsense case study sessions and lots of access to speakers to raise concerns, get questions answered or maybe even just commiserate. And of course, lots of food and fun with some Philly flair is penciled in too.

Keep an eye out for details! Or e-mail at mbattistelli@napco.com
