My Bbcon Experience

This was my fourth bbcon and first bbu day. As we are beginning the process of transitioning to Raiser’s Edge NXT, my goal was to get a head start and learn as much as possible about NXT.   Not only did I learn all about NXT, I am very excited about the possibilities and upcoming features.

I would say that bbu/bbcon is a wonderful combination of learning, networking, inspiration, motivation, and fun!
  • Learning –great variety of classes and sessions.  I learned a great deal.
  • Networking – meeting many friendly, dedicated professionals who are willing to share their experiences.
  • Inspiration – Blair Underwood’s talk – “I see you.”  “I am here”.  What is your greater why?
  • Motivation – the Blackbaud team, conference speakers, and Jeremy Heiman helped to reignite that spark of enthusiasm about my work.
  • Fun – BBU reception, and the amazing reception at Citiwalk.  A great time was had by all.
This year’s bbcon and bbu day exceeded my expectations.  I am informed, inspired, and motivated for the upcoming year!
