The Buzz: Forward Thinking Edition

Published

Hello Community!

Welcome to today's edition of THE BUZZ.

In this week's edition, you'll find:

  • News In The Community
  • Upcoming Events
  • LOTS of certification opportunities!
  • And more!

With a fresh new year ahead of us, there are many great things on our horizon.  For example, did you know that a new rover is on its way to Mars?  Yup, it lands on February 18th.  You can watch the whole thing LIVE on NASA's Youtube channel.

Did you know that on October 31, after decades of delays, the James Webb Space Telescope, Hubble's successor, will take off on a rocket? It will then park itself on the shady side of Earth and help us discover even more about our infinite universe!

We'd love to hear what celesteal event you're looking to the sky for in the upcoming year.  Please leave your answer in the comment section below.

While we're on the topic of things shooting off to another level, we have to mention our top performers in the December Points-a-palooza contest. Dawn Schumacher was #1 with 26,784 points, followed by Austen Brown (23,839 points) and in third place Joann Strommen (15,920 points).  Altogether, the entire Community took advantage of the adjusted points and accumulated nearly half a million bonus points!  Please be sure to visit their profiles and congratulate them!

And now, on to The Buzz...

Of course, there are always new things here at Blackbaud in 2021.  There are new Raiser's Edge Fundamentals courses, and 2021 Certification is available now for Fundraising and Marketing! There are LOTS more course featured below.
