The best way to predict the future of digital is by carefully asking our sector – year by year – how they are navigating an every-changing environment. Since 2015, this one-of-a-kind study jointly authored by NTEN, CARE2, hjc and the Resource Alliance has tracked, and uncovered, key trends, issues and breakthroughs. For example, 2018 Digital Outlook Report found 60% of the non-profits and charities surveyed have no digital strategy. If your organization is part of the 60% then you need to join us at AFP!

Learning Outcomes:

1. How organizations have adapted and succeeded over the last four years of the study
2. What key new trends organizations are grappling with
3. How organizations are taking limited budgets and human resources to be successful
