No matter what the weather forecast may be, the beginning of summer is easy to recognize. As spring winds down, our schedule shifts from fundraising galas to graduations and conferences.
This summer newsletter includes information for everyone involved in virtual and hybrid conferences. And we hope you'll join us at two summer conferences presented by our partners—where you'll find us in front of and behind the cameras. All the details are below.
Summer also means fall 2022 dates are quickly booking. Contact us soon to schedule your events and video production projects. Virtual, hybrid, and in-person—we have you covered.

Production Options for Virtual and Hybrid Conferences
No longer do conference presenters need to travel to appear on the program. If you are planning a conference, virtual and hybrid production options give you flexibility.

Tech Tips for Virtual Conference Panelists
When you present during a conference from a remote location such as your home or office, you play a very important role in the technical execution of the virtual event. Follow these tech tips and you’ll be able to focus on your message when it’s time to go live.

Elevate: A Conference for Fundraising Events
Join us virtually for Elevate on June 21–22. The annual conference presented by Swaim Strategies provides tools you need to plan successful fundraising events. Day 1: take a deep dive into the building blocks—storytelling, relationship-building, strategy—and fuse them together with virtual, hybrid and in-person tools. Day 2: review each step to create your own event plan.
Connect with Greater Giving users and experts on August 9-11 to collaborate, learn, and become inspired for your next fundraising events. Topics will include best practices for your event, creating a run of show and script, event logistics, software management, and more.
