Where in the World Is Marion?

Over the next two months I have a busy schedule which includes some events that you may be interested in. Here are the highlights and registration information.

March 16 –19   Nonprofit Technology Conference, Washington, DC
Almost 2000 people will gather to discuss “everything nonprofit tech” in action packed day and night activities. I’ll be at workshops on blogging, social media, marketing, online giving, and more. I also signed up for a special storytelling workshop and I will be part of the storytelling team reporting on the conference. If you are on twitter you can follow the hashtag #11NTC for commentary and updates on all the conference happenings. Or follow @MarionConway – I’ll be reporting starting Wednesday night.

I know lots of nonprofit technology experts and I am looking forward to this once a year event to see each other in person and also the opportunity to meet new people.

April 5th     Sax, Macy & Fromm Fist to Five Lecture Series
I have been attending and blogging about these events for the last two years. The emcee host, Todd Polyniak, is a partner at this accounting firm and these programs for nonprofits are very well attended. The topic is Branding for Nonprofits and the program will be held in Clifton, NJ. If you are interested in attending you should contact Danielle Atkinson at (973) 472-6250. I’ll be blogging about the program after the event. One of my favorite articles on one of these forums is:

This is a new workshop that I will be offering due to popular demand. The workshop covers the options for using online donating tools and will help you decide the best option for your organization. It includes tips on how to be more effective with your online donation process. This workshop is sponsored by the Partnership in Philanthropy and will be offered in Chatham, NJ.

I will be presenting a workshop on Being on a Board: What's it all About? at this conference which will be held at the FEA Conference Center, Monroe, NJ. This conference has a very diversified program with workshops on fundraising and nonprofit leadership. To learn more, click here.

I also have clients I am working with on an executive search, strategic planning and board retreats. So if you get an email from me at a weird time of day in the next couple of months you know why.
