A properly designed website with compelling content will increase your donors, advocates, volunteers and clients. Are you wondering about the efficacy of your website? Is it ready for the scrap yard? Come interact with Beam & Hinge CEO, Dan Stanton, and long-time nonprofit executive, Mac Bennett, as they discuss what makes a website effective, how to evaluate your current site, what to look for in a website design partner, how to increase on-line giving and what are the expectations of you and your staff during the design process. This is a how-to session with practical advice that can be used now or down the road.
