Engage P2P Conference Is Next Week
Just a quick reminder, folks, that Engage P2P: Redefining Peer-to-Peer Fundraising is less than a week away. But there is still time to register. Use the promo code "FSNEWS" for $100 off the registration fee. And hurry, because seating is limited, and there are only a few seats remaining!
The conference will take place on Tuesday in Washington, D.C. It's a one-day event that's designed to pack as much education and information into 10 hours as possible.
We'll start the day with a keynote by Marty Coelho, senior director of fundraising at Special Olympics International and a driving force behind American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life — the largest fundraising activity in the world. The title of his keynote, "Creating a Movement — The Secret Recipe for P2P Success," should be a clue that it's a can't-miss presentation.
