Community Happenings: August 28, 2018

Hi Community!

Can anyone else believe it’s almost September already?

Me looking at a calendar:

Boss from Office Space saying "uh, yeah"

Since time is of the essence, let’s hop into the latest community happenings!

Make an Appearance
  • First bbcon 2018 in Orlando, Florida is 41 days away! 41! If you’re looking for a way to go on us, check out our contest giving away a bbcon (US) and Blackbaud University Day pass.
  • Stay on track with the latest online fundraising trends and industry best practices while learning about Online Express donation forms in our upcoming webinar.
Stay Informed Get Involved
  • Let’s talk about how to make your organization’s emails more engaging. What creative tactics has your organization used? Share your ideas.
  • Prepare to beam with happiness (or just slightly smirk) but the Blackbaud Community has become the honorary adoptive parents of Moo Shoo. Who is Moo Shoo? Check out our announcement.
If you’ve read this far, let’s have a little fun. There's something big coming to the Blackbaud Community in the coming week or so. Comment below with your guess and I'll draw two prizes - one random and then one for the most creative guess. laugh

See you around the Community!

Wow, 16 product improvements - I checked it out - quite the impressive list.  I was just thinking about how many days were left to bbcon! Thanks for the updates!

Something big...perhaps local Blackbaud Community events that would let us introduce ourselves in person to other locals in the Community? The events could be called NXTdoor Neighbors?

That is absolutely brilliant, Jessica. I LOVE IT.

Perhaps Blair Underwood will be writing a community blog.

I think the big thing coming is a Name That Alpaca competition for a new Blackbaud mascot. :)

Jessica, that would be awesome....maybe another community manager will be joining the team?

My guess is a Blackbaud Community is going to have its own Fantasy Football League and the winner each year gets free admission into the conference!

I will be immediately tweeting at Blair Underwood about this blog idea.

My guess? "Community SMELL-O-VISION!" Users will be able to SMELL that money! No scratch & sniff stuff here - this Community's smell will just ooze from the monitor..... bathing you in it's earthy, uplifting scent of ink straight from the treasury..... (no gift tax applied!)  (In production - Scheduled to be available 4th Q 2018.)

Big announcement, ohhh this sounds so good!! Maybe it's a not for profit makeover?? Could Balckbaud be offering a development office makeover plan and generously come in to our offices and fix all of our problems (like house flip or one of those reality movies)?? This would be AWESOME!!
