Are you coming to this year’s Nonprofit Technology Conference? If so, we hope you’ll come say hi!

M+R’s Sarah DiJulio, Steve Daigneault, Cameron Lefevre, and Megan Yarbrough are all descending on San Francisco next week for NTC and they’d love to see you.

There are a few ways you can connect with us at NTC:

  1. Come heckle us at the following sessions:
    • 2012 eNonprofit Benchmarks: Am I Normal? (#12NTCBench)
      Join M+R Strategic Services and NTEN as we unveil the 2012 eNonprofit Benchmarks Study, which crunches numbers from 44 leading nonprofits. We’ll discuss how you can use this data to transform your organization’s work in 2012 and beyond. (10:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.: Continental Ballroom 4 with M+R’s Sarah DiJulio, Megan Yarborough, and Cameron Lefevre and Stephanie Lauf from Planned Parenthood Federation of America)
    • It’s Not You, It’s Your Stories: Why Fundraisers are Failing at Storytelling – and What They Need to Change (#12NTCNPStory)
      Attendees will get sage advice (based on the super-popular Storytelling and the Art of Email Writing) and see real-world case studies about storytelling tactics that work — and the tactics that don’t — from M+R’s Steve Daigneault and Sue Citro from The Nature Conservancy. (3:30 – 5:00 p.m.: Plaza Room A)
    • Easy Reading on the Go: How to Optimize Emails for Mobile Phones (#12NTCMobileEmail)
      Is your organization ready for the mobile age? Come hear how to create a mobile-friendly experience for the growing segment of supporters who read your emails on their phones. We’ll look at current mobile trends and share practical tips and code for optimizing your email messages for the mobile age! (1:30 – 3:00 p.m.: Imperial Ballroom A with M+R’s Cameron Lefevre and Lindsey Twombly from HRC)
    • Breakthrough Multichannel Fundraising: Find, Convert, and Cultivate Sustainers and Donors by Firing on All Cylinders (#12NTCFundr)
      Some of the most successful campaigns are a result of fundraising through online, direct mail, telemarketing, and other channels. M+R’s Sarah DiJulio will present data on multichannel successes and identify strategies for multichannel integration along with Clinton O’Brien from Care2 and Annalise Briggs from Mercy Corps. (1:30 – 3:00 p.m.: Imperial Ballroom A)
  2. Come beat the afternoon doldrums with a special ice cream and cookies break at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, April 4th in the Grand Ballroom.
  3. Or, if drinks are more your thing, we’ll also be co-hosting what promises to be a truly awesome progressive party with that night from 8 p.m. – midnight. Space is limited so please RSVP here for The-No-Need-To-Explain-Your-Job Party.

And we’ll be live tweeting from the conference and would love to get your take on various sessions (as well as our cookies and party) at @MRCampaigns.

If you can’t make it to NTC but still want to know more about how your nonprofit’s data compares, join our free eNonprofit Benchmarks Study discussion on Wednesday, April 18th – either in person in DC or via our webinar. RSVP here!

Hope we see you soon.
