Impact Conference 2013 Recap

This past Thursday I flew to Albuquerque, New Mexico to attend the annual Impact Conference.  Bright Impact was a leader level sponsor of the conference this year and an exhibitor.

The IMPACT Conference is historically the largest annual conference focused on the civic engagement of college students in community service, service-learning, community-based research, advocacy and other forms of social action.  IMPACT is the one time during the year when students, administrators, faculty, AmeriCorps members and VISTAs, and nonprofit professionals gather together to learn and share effective practices, improve personal skills and organizational strategies, discover opportunities and resources, exchange stories, be inspired and challenged to sustain our efforts.

We had a blast, learned  a lot and got to meet some really cool people!

Everyone we spoke with was very receptive and supportive of what we were doing and many administrators provided us their business cards and requested us to follow up with them to learn more, or help get them started.

We also had the opportunity to get to know a variety of Bright Impact users that we’ve only interacted with virtually up to date, which was really neat.  Special shout  out to Nina Medrana, an  administrator at the University of Texas-Pan American, who sported her Bright Impact T-shirt during the Conference!

The one thing that was initially a disappointment was that the Impact Conference team wasn’t able to include our 1/2 page ad in the conference guide.  Apparently the guide went to print and somehow our ad slipped through the cracks.  Nevertheless, the Impact team was very accommodating and printed out the ad as an insert that was included in the guide and also showed our overview video to all those attending the closing All Conference Session.

All in all we had a wonderful time and found attending the Impact Conference to be not only beneficial for our business, but educational and fun. This is definitely a conference we will plan on attending again.
