As part of our January cover story, we asked some fundraising pros to fill in these blanks: "My favorite trend right now is ______. I would like to see _____ just go away."

To usher in 2012, we asked a plethora of fundraising pros with expertise in a variety of areas to share some of their best tips for their fellow fundraisers. We also wanted to know what their favorite (and least favorite) things are that are going on in fundraising.
