If you've been following my site for a while, you know I blog a lot (when I blog at all) about Salesforce and Convio Common Ground. For those of you in the New York City area who are wondering what the heck the big deal is, I invite you to consider a seminar hosted by my friend, Lisa Glass Kornstein of the Solid Foundation:
Is Salesforce.com Right for Your Organization?Friday, March 11, 2011 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM (Eastern Time)Support Center for Nonprofit Management305 7th Avenue, 11th Floor @ 27th StNew York, New York 10001United StatesMost nonprofits know they need an information system, but may not know how to find a good system or what to look for in a system. This session uses real examples of how other nonprofits in the New York area are using Information Systems to manage their organizations.We’ll discuss these and other questions:• What is Constituent Relationship Management (CRM)?• How are CRM systems used for fundraising and program management?• What to look for in an information system?• How does the Salesforce.com donation program work?• What do nonprofits use Salesforce for?• Why would a nonprofit use a "Sales Tool"?You will leave this session with an understanding of how other nonprofits are managing their information needs, which will help give ideas for your organization.
Looks like a great workshop to check out.
