Hi Angie,

It was nice connecting today and I'm thrilled that you are accepting this

Below I have updated the session description to take into account most
recent developments, including your acceptance. This remains a draft and we
have until June 4th to finalize this outline for further dissemination.


*Session Title: "The impact of the internet and e-Fundraising on
Notforprofits and NGOs"*
*Overview: The amount of donations raised on line is still relatively small
but is the fastest growing segment of philanthropy. Notforprofits and
Non-governmental Organizations must develop new mindsets, master new
technologies and acquire new competencies and skills to tap these new
sources of charitable giving. While traditional donors often make their
decisions based on cause and administrative efficiency, a new breed of
social investors are looking for outcomes, impact and returns. A
multi-disciplinary panel of experts and practitionners will scan the
evolving e-Fundraising scene and share their experience on the subject.*
*Agenda: (CEST - Central European Summer Time - UTC + 2) *
*11:00 - 11:05 NPOC Chair Alain Berranger will welcome participants*
*11:05 - 11:15 Tour de table - Remote and in-room participants will
identify themselves*
*11:15 - 12:00 Session Facilitator (TBD) will present Panelists followed by
the 3 session presentations:*
*1.    Caroline Figueres, Executive Director, International Institute for
Communications and Development (IICD), The Hague, The Netherlands (TBC)*
*        "Title to follow" when speaker confirmed *
*2.     Angie Graves, President, Worldwide Electronic Broadcasting Group,
Atlanta, Georgia, USA (confirmed)*

Bikoff, LLP, Washington, DC, USA (confirmed)*

*Estimated Number of Attendees: 35*
*Preferred room set-up: Table in front for 3 Panelists, 1 Session Chair and
1 Session Facilitator + and rows of 30 chairs for audience. We also need a
projector, with connection and screen. We will need Acrobat Connect so that
remote participants can see the .ppt slides. We need minimal space to stand
our banners in view of audience.*
*Who should attend? Heads of NFPs/NGOs, Officers and Directors in charge of
Fundraising, Communications and Partnerships, CIOs and Heads of IT depts.*
*General introduction: "The purpose of the NPOC is to represent,
specifically, the operational concerns related to service delivery of
not-for-profit and non-governmental organizations who are domain
registrants in the DNS. NPOC will focus on the impact of DNS policies and
their effects on the operational readiness and implementation of
non-commercial missions and objectives.  NPOC members rely on the Internet
and DNS policies to provide valuable services to their communities."*
*Adobe Connect Host: to be determined.*
Angie, in due course, I will need a short bio for the Facilitator.

Let's be in touch
