Michael Z. Daryabeygi will be joining other presenters at this event.  He will be discussing how to evaluate new technology tools for use in your engagement strategy. Organizations often face the challenge of using different types of technology tools for different aspects of their engagement strategy, including email lists, events, campaigns, etc. Data existing in silos makes it difficult to understand how supporters are engaged.
