Tactical Philanthropy Blog Team

Last year at the Council on Foundations conference I put together a team of about 20 guest bloggers to cover the conference. You can see the extensive coverage and commentary here.

This year I’ve been assembling a team for the conference in Atlanta. But I’ve been shocked by the large number of people I’ve contacted who are not attending the conference due to curtailed travel budgets. It will be interesting to see what kind of attendance there is at the conference. However, this also means that there is a greater need for effective coverage.

Would you like to join this year’s blog team? If you are interested, please email me for details. And if you are on Twitter, remember that the hash tag for the conference is #COFannconf09. Even if you are not a Twitter user, you can use Twitter Search to search for the keyword #COFannconf09 and view all conference related Tweets.

    I’d love to join the team, but I’m only in Atlanta until Sunday. Looking forward to your coverage!

  2. I’ve also contacted many philanthropy colleagues to see if they are attending the CoF conference, and 90% of them are not — due to budget cuts.

    I look forward to being part of your blog team!
