Mark your calendars for next month’s 2011 Millennial Donoar Summit and rejoice in the fact that you don’t have to book a flight or hotel! MDS11 is “a virtual summit providing a day of speakers, thought leaders, and provocateurs challenging the traditional modes of fundraising and engagement.” That’s right, June 22, 2011, you can join in the sessions, discussions and more all from the comfort of your own computer.

MDS11 helps to extend the concepts and ideas discovered in the annual Millennial Donors Survey conducted by JGA and Achieve. The summit is an opportunity to build a pool of knowledge for millennial engagement. By bringing thought leaders together for a day of knowledge and inspiration, the summit is the first step for organizations to build a new millennial engagement program and to begin a new shift in constituent involvement in their organization.

• Why engaging Millennials matters
• How to engage Millennials in your cause
• Implications of the latest nonprofit and consumer research on Millennials
• Employing social media to engage Millennials
• Leveraging the online experience with Millennials
• Incorporating the latest trends in mobile technology for engaging and giving

  • Amy, thanks so much for posting and promoting the Summit – we’re excited  that you’ll be covering the event on your blog – and are anxious to hear from you or your readers if you have any good tips or tricks to running/participating in a virtual summit.  This is the first time we’ve ventured into this territory and want to learn as we go along!

    • Thanks, Kari! I’m excited that Case is involved in this and really looking
      forward to all the ideas shared in just one day 🙂

      From being a part of the Women Who Tech telesummit each year, here are a few
      things I’ve learned:
      – If you have a headset, speaker phone (in a private room) or something else
      it will really help!
      – Use the breaks to get whatever you may need/want during the next session
      (fresh coffee, snack, another note pad, etc)
      – Use the chat features to connect with speakers and other participants;
      remember, you are not alone out there on the line!
      – Take notes during the sessions on slides or resources to check out later
      (pretty much everything is already posted afterwards).

      Looking forward to this!
