Take the 2014 Trends Survey NowWe’ve heard from about 1,500 nonprofits so far via our Nonprofit Communications Trends Survey for 2014 — please add your voice now if you aren’t in that 1,500! We’ll close the survey on Tuesday, December 3.

The preliminary survey results identify these top five challenges for nonprofit communications pros in 2014:

1. Lack of time to produce quality content

2. Lack of budget for direct expenses

3. Lack of clear strategy

4. Inability to measure effectiveness

5. Producing engaging content

As we wind up 2013 and think about next year, consider how you will personally deal with the challenges of being a nonprofit communications professional. What can you change about your workload or working style? What conversations can you have with your management team and co-workers to address these pain points?

If you haven’t already, please take the 2014 Nonprofit Communications Trends Survey now and we’ll send you a free copy of the final report in January.

P.S. We won’t blog on Thursday and Friday as we celebrate Thanksgiving here in the U.S. See you Monday!
