The International AFP Conference in San Antonio this week was pretty amazing!
This year I didn’t make any presentations – and that meant for a change, I could sit back and enjoy learning from so many smart fundraising leaders.
I was tweeting up a storm! Instead of taking notes, I set down key thoughts in my tweets.
