New Speakers Announced for Cause Camp 2017

If you haven’t yet seen, we recently announced the speaker lineup for Cause Camp 2017, and we have even more exciting news. We’ve added two more names to our two-day conference.

We’ve invited thought leaders from both the nonprofit and for-profit sectors to both introduce new ideas and solidify old ones. Cause Camp is more than two days of lectures, it’s an experience dedicated to education, collaboration and inspiration to keep your (camp) fire alive.

Without further adieu, here are the two newest speakers coming to Cause Camp 2017:


Marc Pitman: Cause Camp 2017 Emcee

Marc Pitman believes fundraising is all about leadership. He’s so passionate people have started calling him the “Johnny Appleseed of fundraising.” Fundraising affects everything from mission and vision to board governance to HR to marketing and community relations. He is committed to making it ridiculously easy for everyone – board members, volunteers, and nonprofit staff – to get fundraising training. Ask Without Fear! has been translated into Dutch, Polish, Spanish, and Chinese. And he continues to write books, create fundraising training DVDs, and collaborate on systems like 100 Donors in 90 Days.

Marc’s leadership experience also includes planting and pastoring a Vineyard church, managing a gubernatorial campaign, teaching internet marketing at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and being chosen as one of Maine’s first “40 Under Forty,” honoring Maine’s emerging generation of leaders.
