Happy Wednesday, Blackbaud Community,


Last week, over 6,000 people tuned in for the “Navigating Changes to Your Mail Processes” webinars. Event organizers noticed that several themes developed in the Q&A – enough that they wanted to follow up addressing those questions in a blog post HERE.


Each week, we aim to bring you a little closer to one of our Blackbaud Community super users (AKA Ninjas).

This week, we’d like to introduce Tina Pappas; Business Manager at the Country School.


What area are you in (geographically) and why do you love it?
I live and work along the shoreline in Connecticut. I love being near the water and we have some beautiful beaches. In addition to that, you can't beat the proximity to NYC and Boston. And the pizza! New Haven has the best pizza (don't even bother trying to change my mind). 

What do you enjoy about the Blackbaud Community?
The people and camaraderie! I came to the community as such a newbie and everyone has been so kind and willing to share their experiences, tricks and solutions. I also love The Tap. It's a fabulous place to get to know community members beyond their professional lives. 

What is something that you never thought you’d enjoy at your current job that gets you up and motivates you now?
I love the variety. I'm sure everyone who works at a small independent school will identify when I say, you wear a lot of hats! I don't like a lot of unpredictability in my personal life. However I appreciate it when it comes to work and enjoy the freshness each day brings.

Looking to become an elite member of the Blackbaud Community? These elite members are known as Blackbaud Community Ninjas. It’s a well-earned status, and all the requirements can be found HERE.
