 Save the date and put this conference in your budget!

AFP DC and the Direct Marketing Association of Washington (DMAW) will conduct a fully virtual Bridge to Integrated Marketing & Fundraising Conference, Ju​ly 1​4-1​5, 20​21. The decision to go virtual was made after months of careful deliberation, taking into account a variety of safety and economic factors, and, most importantly, our attendees' likely willingness to travel in July, regardless of the progress of our national recovery.

Energy, Endurance and Excellence — our 20​21 theme has inspired our Education Committee to begin the hard work of creating a stellar program of educational sessions, all designed to re-energize you and your campaigns and give you the energy and the endurance you need to achieve excellence.

Like many events in 20​20, last year’s Bridge experienced challenges. We’re smarter and more experienced today. The 20​21 Bridge Conference will be conducted on a deep, robust platform delivered by a seasoned virtual conference expert and we are confident will deliver an outstanding educational and networking experience. 

The Bridge Conference was designed to bridge the gap between traditional fundraisers and their marketing counterparts to better serve our sector and the many virtuous causes we represent. Our commitment to that mission has not waivered, despite challenges brought by the pandemic. We have the energy to meet its challenge and the endurance to see it through with you to lay the foundation for future excellence.

Registration opens the first week of March and fees start at $249 for Loyal Attendees; Early Bird registration is $299; Regular registration is $399 and Day-of registration is $499.
