Community Happenings: May 3 2017

Hello Community!
Before I get to the good stuff, I wanted to share something with you. Don’t worry, it’s not angst about finding the right theme for this week’s Community Happenings. It’s actually a result of that.9856c0a9c89bffe51c2c0ca12d004467-huge-in 

Viola! I took each of the “what to do when I run out of inspiration” ideas left on last week’s post and made an “Inspiration Corner.”
Super creative name aside (ahem), these ideas will help me when the inspiration well runs dry. The best part is that it comes from the Community. It reminded me of why our Community is here – to share knowledge, connect, & learn from one another. Even with your crazy community manager.
Let me return the favor by sharing what’s happening in the Community:
Make an Appearance
  • Thanks to the Community advice, there are plenty of ways to convince your organization to send you to bbcon 2017. Hope to see you in Baltimore!
  • Talking about conferences – have you registered for the K-12 User Conference in July? You can receive 10% off registration now until May 15 for being a Community Member.
Stay Informed
  • It’s okay if not everyone likes your organization – it can’t be everything to everyone. Learn how to build a stronger web of support with your organization’s supporters with these tips & tricks.
  • Gotta love when fellow community members help you solve a problem – especially a Raiser’s Edge imports question about missing constituent ids.
Get Involved Alright favorite community, that’s it for now.  I’m off to drive my cubemates mad with random dance parties to keep the inspiration well full. See you next week!

So loving the "inspiration corner"! I'm going to borrow this idea if you don't mind.

I hope you find the right person for your organization, Diana!!! :) 

Absolutely Stacie - we all need inspiration! Maybe your doodles will be better than mine. Share it with me when you've created it :)
