What questions to ask when shopping for new platforms. How to prepare for a transition to a new CRM. How long the transition should take. And pitfalls to watch out for in the search and transition process.

Speaker Bios 

Alissa VanDeman - Alissa has worked in the nonprofit world as a fundraiser for over a decade and worked in a number of different databases managing prospects and donor relationships through identification, cultivation, solicitation, and stewardship to meet fundraising goals.

The majority of this time was spent at the University of South Florida fundraising for public media stations WUSF and Classical WSMR. It included keeping donor records up to date in different fundraising management systems: Allegiance, Banner and Ellucian Advance. Currently, WUSF is considering a database conversion, going through the process of cleaning up current data and selecting a new one.
