Welcome to Direct Marketing Association of Washington

DMAW members are nonprofit integrated direct response fundraisers, marketers, and engagement advocates. We offer educational programming, networking opportunities, and professional development. Our community includes anyone who works with or for nonprofits to better engage their members and supporters as well as those who aim to foster the next generation experts in this field. We look forward to meeting you!

Submit your proposal to be considered to speak at the 2022 Bridge to Integrated Marketing & Fundraising Conference! Or, forward this to an expert colleague you would like to hear at Bridge!

We’re looking for original content and great case studies that illustrate proven strategies and offer new perspectives. The last 19 months have been a whirlwind, and the fundraising industry has weathered the storm because of experts like you. Share your campaign wins and what you learned from the not-so-successful campaigns.

The Bridge Conference is planning to be in-person Wednesday, July 27 - Friday, July 29 at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD (adjacent to Washington, DC).

It will be great to be together again at Bridge! And, we hope you will be part of these exciting new times with us.

Deadline to submit a proposal is Monday, November 15!
