The Buzz: July 2, 2021


Welcome to today's edition of THE BUZZ.

In this edition, you'll find:

  • Upcoming events
  • Job Listings
  • Featured bbcon presentations
  • Unanswered community questions
  • And more!

Have you checked out the virtual sessions for bbcon 2021 yet? We have some Community ALL-STAR Ninjas presenting this year!

A couple that jump out to me are “Quick Wins: Empowering Data Base Managers” by our own Ryan Hyde, Carlene Johnson, Patti Hommes, and Amy Dana!

Intrigued? Good, because they are also doing “What is a Database Manager? The SeQuel” and Stephanie Crawley is joining them for that.

Those are just some of the MANY virtual sessions happening this year. You can see a complete list by going HERE in Community.

Which ones are you excited about? Plan on attending? Let us know HERE in Community!


Every Thursday at 12pm EST we facilitate a Community Open House, where we show and tell the top five ways to get the most out of the Blackbaud Community and answer any of your questions. All members are welcome, you don’t have to be new to learn something new each time and I’m one of the Community experts! We hope to be with you there!


Current Members, please use the filters on the member search tool to friend and welcome a new member with whom you have something in common.


Quite a few of us get up in the morning and the first thing we do is reach for our cup of coffee. As it turns out, that might not be a bad thing. Research shows that coffee has some incredibly beneficial effects on our health. Read all about the benefits here and tell us what YOUR coffee of choice is!


Here's how: Answer an Unanswered Question! We'll be awarding 1,000 points to any user who can answer one of these questions in Community this week.

I like the flexibility of a virtual conference, especially in a busy job. But I miss the networking and the swag, too.

Thanks for the Shout Out, Ray Bergman! We are SO EXCITED to be doing not one, but TWO sessions!!! And the best part is, you won't all be packed in a little room like sardines and spilling out into the halls! Although I do miss the human interaction.

Oh and I really miss the….
