Overwhelming Response + RMHC Conference!

Wow. Last week our marketing folks sent out an email to our customers announcing our new blog. Within a few minutes, we had an unexpectedly high number of subscribers. That leads me to two things:

First: Thank you! I look forward to our discussions on various aspects of fundraising and donor management as we journey forward together.

Second: I must admit that I'm a bit intimidated. It's easy to write something if you think nobody is paying attention, but it's quite a different story when you have a group of people reading with you. Please always feel free to submit topic ideas. I really want to make sure that this blog is interesting and informative. Bring up a topic, and I'll do the legwork (at least some of it)!

I'd like to share some words from Marcia Grimm, our Development Advisor, about the RMHC conference.

How exciting it was to be a part of the 2011 Ronald McDonald House Charities International Conference in Chicago last week! There was an amazing energy in the conference hall, as an estimated 1000 attendees from all over the world stopped by vendor and supplier booths in the ‘Resource Connection Center.' We visited with people representing RMHC charities and Ronald McDonald Houses in Brazil, Korea, Australia, Canada, Tazmania, and numerous states throughout the US - all looking for information on products and services to help them in their heartwarming missions. We hope to soon welcome some of these very special organizations into the ResultsPlus family and are very proud to support our own local Ronald McDonald House as well.

Have you attended a stimulating conference lately? If yes, what made the experience such a positive one? Anything you would like to share?
