Here at Harvey McKinnon Associates, we work hard at staying on top of the latest trends and newest research as it relates to non-profits in Canada. Whether it’s the latest in online giving, what’s working for legacy gifts, or the most recent direct mail results, we always keep a keen eye on what’s happening in our sector.
One of the best ways to stay in-the-know? Conferences and educational events. There’s just something about the in-person nature of conferences that really adds to the educational experience. Getting to see a lecture or workshop in person, with the ability to ask questions and discuss ideas not only with the presenter but with those around you is invaluable.
Often times, the amount of useful information received just by talking to others in your field can be unexpected. We are lucky enough to work in a field which has many brilliant and inspired people working in it, many of whom are eager to share their experiences. This is one of the most beautiful aspects of a conference. And then of course, there’s the free food and post-parties!
Over the next few months we’re going to be quite busy sponsoring, exhibiting, and speaking at conferences all across Canada. If you’re planning to attend any of the below conferences, or would like more information about whether attending would be worthwhile for you or your organization feel free to drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to see you there.
