Rewire to Inspire!

Fundraisers and nonprofit professionals need to stay up to speed with today’s technology and techniques, plain and simple. New web tools, apps and social networks can bring you up close and personal to your supporters in ways we never thought possible. What do donors want? Why do they give? How can you capture their imagination? The AFP TechKnow Conference will provide you with the strategic ideas and practical solutions in the areas of social media, knowledge/database management, marketing and communications and of course, technology. It's time to "rewire" your thinking in order to "inspire" your donors for years to come. Rewire your thinking for inspired results!
