Board diversity is still a challenge at nonprofits and for-profits alike. Solutions will require actively thinking about strategic needs—and noticing the people raising their hands to help.


It’s hard work to convince new people to register for your conferences, but your current attendees may be able and willing to help. Here are three tactics for making it happen.


As the number of organizations participating in the post-Thanksgiving charitable holiday swells, it can be harder to get a foothold with donors. Fundraising experts give tips to help you distinguish yourself and make the most of #GivingTuesday.

About the Webinar: We send our members email with lots of good content. Our members hear us talking. And they''re somewhat engaged. But there''s more we can do. We''ve got the talking part down. Let''s start listening better. Join us in this webinar where we''ll discuss how to listen at scale, what to ask, when to ask, and how to ask your members questions in a way that gets them talking and more engaged.

About the Speaker: While working for SAP, a multi-billion dollar software company, nearly 20 years ago, Dave Will was advised to "walk faster and smile less, because perception is reality." Dave took this feedback to heart and started a business based on the antithesis of this advice. Fourteen years later, Dave successfully sold Peach New Media, an LMS for associations, which is now part of Community Brands. Since then, Dave and former Peach, Cameron Aubuchon, built a Feedback Automation Platform called PropFuel and they're here again to help associations improve member engagement and build a stronger relationships through conversation marketing.
