From the CEO

Dear Nonprofit professional,

Like the gears of a machine, your nonprofit's resources — financial, human or otherwise — are critical in order to reach your online goals. Yet, little research has been conducted around how nonprofits should align resources for optimal results online. In this issue of Connection, we share a new report that identifies emerging trends related to organizational structure and how your nonprofit can staff for online success.
Also in this issue, we share success strategies for redesigning your website and video from David Neff at American Cancer Society discussing his favorite online tools to help you raise awareness and operate more efficiently. And finally, we explore the topic of Moves Management™ and why it's important for every organization to develop a strategy to cultivate constituent relationships and move them toward major giving. 

Convio CEO Gene AustinRegards,

Gene Austin
Chief Executive Officer, Convio
