    I know that Ken (Incident Response for Nonprofits), Dar (one on data governance and one on knowledge management), and I  (Staffing) all had Session proposals accepted.

    Anyone else get sessions accepted?

    Yes, I had a CRM session accepted, and I'm also speaking on Kirk Schmidt's session about development statistics.

    Did they notify you via email? Seems some starting getting confirmations last week but the Program page is still a little sparse :) Just curious!

    @Natania LeClerc all session notifications went out last week for the following categories: Accepted, Not Accepted and Still Being Considered.

    I have a number of notifications for you (and quite a few others) that got bounced back to me because of a bad email that was connected to the proposal so will work to get those over to you :-)

    In terms of the program (agenda page), there is now at least 5 session per category and I will continue to get them posted as their acceptance is confirmed. Filling in but again we will end up with roughly 25 sessions per category so expect that page to just continue to fill out.

    Hi Ash,

    Thank you for the clarification. I personally had one team session accepted and individual tactical session not accepted. My question is, is there any way to receive feedback on what was missing in the session(s) that resulted in elimination? (I am sorry if I missed it, but the message seemed quite generic :-)). For someone like me who is a rookie applicant into this, it would be helpful so as to be able to come back next year with stronger proposals.

    The sessions are all up.


    There was one proposal on implementing AGILE in your nonprofit.  Did that one not make the cut?  I really wanted to go to that.
