Apply Now to Present at Second Annual BridgeTECH During Bridge Conference 2024
NonProfit PRO is excited to announce that it will be returning to the Bridge to Integrated Fundraising & Marketing Conference in 2024 to co-present the second annual BridgeTECH. Once again, NonProfit PRO will be working with the Direct Marketing Association of Washington (DMAW) and the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Washington, D.C. (AFP-DC). The call for papers for BridgeTECH is now open, and the deadline for submissions is Nov. 10.
“We are delighted to work with the Bridge Conference team for the second year in a row to co-present the BridgeTECH conference,” Chris Lyons, president of NonProfit PRO, said. “The inaugural event in 2023 was a great success, and this upcoming event will bring fresh knowledge to nonprofits about the technology that is such a vital part of their operations. In order to build an incredible lineup of tech-focused content for BridgeTECH 2024, we are seeking presentation ideas from nonprofit technology enthusiasts.”
The theme of the 19th annual Bridge Conference, being hosted at the Gaylord National Hotel in National Harbor, Maryland, from July 31 to Aug. 2, 2024, is “Powering Progress.” This theme underscores the constant changes and rapid advancements in technology that are influencing integrated marketing and fundraising. To reflect the theme, the Bridge Conference is looking for submissions that highlight innovation and progress.
The BridgeTECH portion of the conference will include a full day of immersive sessions on Wednesday, July 31, 2024, followed by continuing sessions on Thursday, Aug. 1, 2024, and Friday, Aug. 2, 2024. It is geared toward technology experts and nonprofit professionals who work closely with fundraising and marketing efforts.
BridgeTECH submissions should focus on what you can provide the nonprofit industry in terms of technologies, strategies and perspectives on the most recent technologies out there. Showcase how these tech solutions and strategies can directly support fundraising initiatives and improve donor outreach in your submission.
Also new for 2024, there is a sub-track dedicated to artificial intelligence being done in partnership with Fundraising.AI.
Submissions should consist of original content and highlight case studies that provide a look at your successes — and some of your less successful work — to give your colleagues and other nonprofit professionals the resources to find their way through the industry and create a bigger impact.
The Bridge Conference also announced it is seeking submissions for its fundraising and marketing tracks, advanced track, pre-conference workshops, the second annual Faith & Fundraising Forum, and the political track. Submissions for these are also open until Nov. 10.
