Let’s Create a Connection: Stop Spamming and Start Connecting with Email ContactsCan you send less email and get better results? If a recent case study from Canada is any indication, the answer is YES. Canada’s Anti-Spam Law (CASL), enacted in July 2014, was one of the world’s toughest, requiring organizations to obtain express consent from individuals to send email. What can we learn from this forced experiment in trimming email lists?
Rather than impeding nonprofit email programs, our 2016 Luminate Online Benchmark Report shows that after two full years under CASL, savvy Canadian nonprofits have benefited from a shift in focus on quality vs. quantity: taking a more targeted approach that builds stronger relationships with those on their lists.

Nonprofit Professional Development – Not just a side projectGPS Education Partners has a tough challenge ahead of them needing to transform the way their students prepare for a technical-skilled career, while also refilling the talent pool for manufacturers and supporting local communities. The way they plan to combat this challenge is through exponential growth in their enrollment, then hiring and fundraising over the next several years. To keep up with increased demands of serving so many students, GPS Education has partnered with Blackbaud University to put their employees first by speeding up the onboarding process then provide professional development opportunities for tenured employees.
Join us to hear Heidi Tabat, Database Administrator at GPS Education Partners, as she shares the importance of quick onboarding and professional development for a nonprofit team and how partnering with Blackbaud University is getting that team closer to achieving their goals. Experience how she built a set of training matrixes for several key positions in the organization which has led to employees feeling empowered to determine what classes they need, how long it takes to complete, and what they can truly use for professional development. The result, GPS Education Partners has realized the value in training isn’t just in saving time (which is significant) but more importantly it helps drive business objectives.
