Percolator at NTC 2017

We were at NTC last month, were you? Team Percolator gave two presentations:

Barbara Christensen wowed the crowds with her talk: WordPress & Salesforce – So Happy Together! She showed some examples of nice Salesforce/Wordpress integrations and shared her favorite tools (Gravity Forms, Form Assembly, etc.). If you missed it, you can check out her slide deck here.

Karen Uffelman teamed up with client Loren Drummond from Washington Trails Association and project partner Sally Kleinfeldt from Jazkarta for the session For the Love of Volunteers: What’s the Right Technology to Manage them? We talked through off-the-shelf volunteer management options and then reviewed the custom solution we built for WTA. Want to learn more? See the slide deck here

What else happened at NTC?

We went to a good session on Online-to-Offline action that featured staff from Food & Water Watch, Ultraviolet, and Greenpeace USA, and thought lots of big thoughts about how to track engagement (most of our thoughts were about StepUp). Loren Drummond had another great session where she talked about the importance of content with Sarah Gulick from the National Parks Service and Kassia Randzio from the Montana Wilderness Association. We also loved Kat Skiles, Danielle Brigida, and Kristin Johnson’s session Are You There Congress? It’s Me, Tweeting. Not surprisingly, it had an active twitter feed calling out the high points. (TL;DR: offline action is still key.)

Finally, and most importantly, we tore it up at the Girlforce happy hour with some of the meanest pool sharks in the sector:

And Swift River’s smiling Katie McFadden on the right knows she’s going to sink this shot.




Ryan Ozimek from PICnet showed us all how it’s done (Justin Barss from Now It Matters supervised, blurrily), and Percolator’s own Barbara Christensen ended the night by clearing the table.


It was a crazy evening at Madams Organ! Meet us in New Orleans for NTC 2018 (we are enthusiastic about next year’s location!) and we promise we’ll play pool with you, too. But don’t wager money on any games with Barbara!
