Ecsite Directors Forum 2011 a success in Cologne and Kerkrade

The Ecsite Directors Forum 2011: Crossing Borders began with a thought-provoking and provocative keynote address from Roland Csaki- an expert in marketing and fundraising for non-profit institutions. Csaki talked about fundraising approaches for science centres and museums that integrate new media and meet the expectations and needs of a rapidly changing public. What works? What doesn’t? You can review Csaki’s presentation, Fundraising in the Digital Age, in pdf format here: www.ecsite.eu/sites/default/files/forum_reports/Roland_Csaki_Nonprofit_marketing_and_communications_expert_Hungary_24112011.pdf
