Bbcon 2012, World’s Largest Technology Conference For Nonprofits, Is Gearing Up

Blackbaud, Inc. (Nasdaq: BLKB) today announced the opening of registration for bbcon 2012, its annual conference for nonprofits, which is being held September 30 to October 2 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in Washington, D.C. Early registration discounts are available through July 15.

The conference, which drew more than 2,100 attendees last year, will provide nonprofit professionals with three days of educational content focused on professional development, technology training, and opportunities to network and interact with peers and industry experts.

Following Blackbaud’s recent acquisition of Convio, bbcon 2012 will combine with the annual Convio Summit to create an even larger gathering of nonprofit professionals and partners.

“We are excited to bring the nonprofit technology community together for three days of professional development, hands-on training and networking,” said Sara Spivey, Blackbaud’s vice president of corporate marketing. “bbcon 2012 will provide attendees an opportunity to learn about new technology, deepen their knowledge of Blackbaud products, discover best practices and bring back actionable strategies to share with their organizations.”

Educational sessions to feature nonprofit tech trends and tips

Sessions at this year’s conference will focus on the following areas: analytics, arts and cultural, constituent relationship management (CRM), K-12 education, financial management, fundraising, interactive, and personal and professional development. View the 2012 bbcon Preliminary Agenda.

“bbcon is everything all in one place—you can get training, learn about new technologies, stay at the forefront of trends and network with peers,” said Patti Posey, database administrator at Stamford Hospital Foundation. “I have attended the conference for a number of years and each time I come away with new knowledge to help me and my organization work smarter and better. And that helps us better achieve our mission and serve our constituents.”

Attend bbcon 2012 for free

Blackbaud is awarding scholarships to 10 nonprofit professionals who best summarize how they would benefit from attending bbcon 2012. Professionals interested in applying for a scholarship should submit an application by June 15, 2012.
