How to attend the year’s best nonprofit conferences without actually going

on February 25, 2019

It’s that time again. Conference season. The time when Decent Humans from all over the globe come together to learn new fundraising strategies, exchange stories of successes (and maybe even some misses), and gain valuable wisdom and insights to help further their missions

Not going to any conferences this year? No worries. We’re attending both the Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum and the AFP Icon show so you don’t have to.

Follow along

We’ll be live in both New Orleans and San Antonio checking out every session (well, lots of them at least), meeting up with industry favorites, and doing all the things to help us serve our nonprofit community even better.

The best part? We’ll be live tweeting, sharing, and blogging about everything the entire time. Follow along with us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to stay in the know. You can also keep an eye on our blog, as we recap all the best takeaways from these conferences.

Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum in New Orleans

We’ll be live in New Orleans at the Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum February 27th through the 28th. And, we’re really excited to sponsor the ‘Smaller, but Substantial’ summit where we’ll hear from leaders who face the various challenges and opportunities that come with running a smaller program.

We’re also going to be hosting some 'Minute to Win It' style games at the conference to shake things up a bit — and $5k in donations will be up for grabs for winning nonprofits. Don’t worry, we’ll be sharing all the fun on social throughout the week, including doing an Instagram takeover for Nonprofit Tech For Good live from the floor, sharing all of our favorite moments.

AFP ICON 2019 in San Antonio

Next, we’re off to San Antonio in late March to attend the AFP ICON conference. Stay tuned as we share favorite takeaways on our blog and do live commentary on our social channels.

We’ll also be hosting a very romantic product tour. Yup, you heard that right. We’re doing a product walkthrough with our very own Tre and couldn’t just have your typical, run-of-the-mill tour. So…. attendees will join Tre over candlelight for a romantic look at our platform. And, don’t worry, we’ll be live tweeting all of the action so you don’t miss any of the romance.


There you have it. Everything you need to know to attend both Peer-to-Peer Professional Forum and AFP ICON without ever leaving your living room. And, if you are heading to one or both of the conferences, stop by and say hi. We’ve got some cool things happening at both shows that you’ll definitely want to check out.
