Conference Presentation Tomorrow

I will be presenting on new developments in fundraising databases at tomorrow's Asssociation of Fundraising Professionals conference in Tarrytown. What fun! Much of the presentation will be about best practice for budgeting, staffing and rationalizing technology investments. I'll give a strategic view of the alternatives. 

Rather than start with data entry, we'll be starting with complex reporting and work backwards. I hope we can ignite some real insights from the audience.
