Two upcoming niche events catered to the public sector that I highly recommend

Public Sector Marketing 2.0

Every year I attend and/or speak at numerous conferences, events, and seminars related to marketing, communications, social media, technology and government.

Upcoming conferences and reasons to attend them…

Public Sector Marketing 2.0

It definitely has not been an easy year for various conference organizers. I know of many marketing events (including some I had been invited to speak at), that had to be canceled this year for the first time due to low registration rates. From what I hear, it’s not so much the price of these events, but rather the fact that potential registrants are having to cut back from attending two or three events a year, to attending one, if any at all.

Careers in Fundraising: David Lalka

A Small Change

Like many development officers and consultants, I entered the field of fund-raising not by design, but by accident–and I stayed. On reflection, my primary motivation for doing this work is my strong belief in the inestimable value of not-for-profit organizations to the benefit of society as a whole and to individuals in particular. Several things, I believe, are important for my “success.” What advice do you have for new fund-raisers?

Board Member Compensation

The Nonprofit Consultant

For the organizations that I work with - mostly small to mid-sized community organizations - it would be a shock to find that any of them pay their board members. For many of the largest nonprofits (hospitals, universities, some foundations), however, compensation is considered a requirement in order to "attract the best talent." I can't imagine any scenario where I'd encourage them to ask for a paycheck. Also see Paid boards spur not-for-profit debate

Other non profit staff talk about other non profits; and grant donors discuss potential grant recipients with each other. As a group of professionals who work for non profit organizations (i.e. 501(c)(3) organization, as defined by the IRS; governments, Tribes, religious affiliations, research organizations, schools, and many other not for profit entities) we are often trying to walk a fine line.

What non profit doesn't want to be an excellent fundraiser? Well, up until recently, maybe The Bellevue Arts Museum located in Bellevue , Washington; which has been long plagued by some catastrophic difficulties that honestly would have shut most non profits down a bit ago.
