This year's NAIS Annual Conference will look a little bit different as a 100 percent virtual event. However, Gravyty is proud to sponsor this must-attend, annual event for independent schools and advancement professionals.
Gravyty's sponsorship give advancement professionals the chance to hear about what other independent schools are doing to develop successful advancement programs, bring home a host of actionable ideas, and implement what you have learned at the conference and empower change at your institution.
Here are a couple sessions from this year's lineup that we have our eyes on ahead of the conference:
Fundraising As We Know It: What Has Changed, What Hasn’t, and How to Move Forward
While there is no way to know what the future of fundraising looks like, this workshop will feature an open conversation between three heads of school from across the United States about how they have navigated various crises in the past year and the steps they have taken to become better, more thoughtful fundraisers. Attendees will be invited to participate in focused breakout rooms where a guided conversation will allow for the opportunity to learn from fellow independent schools and fundraising experts.
Cybersecurity in the Age of COVID
The COVID-19 pandemic forced organizations to move quickly into virtual learning and remote working for 1000s of students and employees. While we have been challenged with providing continuity in services for our students and faculty, cybercriminals around the world have seized upon opportunities to exploit this crisis by impersonating trusted brands through phishing attacks as well as malware and ransomware attacks using COVID-19 as a cover. This session will explore the impact of COVID-19 on cybersecurity and provide guidance on how to keep your organization secure as we transition in and out of virtual learning/working in the coming year and beyond.
Gravyty is thrilled for the opportunity to help bring you this year's conference, and look forward to (virtually) seeing you there!
