Topic Conferences and Events
Blackbaud, Inc. hosted more than 1,100 leaders of the nonprofit sector at its seventh annual Blackbaud Conference for Nonprofits on October 22-25. The Conference was centered around 120 educational sessions focusing on hot topics in the Internet, executive management, financial management, technology, development, and prospect research.
Tim Kobosko, United States Naval Academy Alumni Association's vice president of information services, attended the conference for his fourth time. 'Each year it gets better,' he said. 'I can't imagine spending three days anywhere else where we'd get this much valuable insight into products and what's ahead-and to be able to spend one-on-one time with Blackbaud employees.'
The Conference, which had a sellout crowd for a second year in a row, also provided Blackbaud clients with an opportunity to network with peers, preview the latest technologies, and meet Blackbaud employees-including the company's chief executive officer, Marc Chardon.
