Regardless of which Blackbaud fundraising database you use, the role and position of the database administrator is an important one. Database administrators are not “just support staff.” They are — or should be — serious professionals who bring subject matter expertise to the fundraising process just as our colleagues do in the annual fund, events, major gifts, and membership areas. So what is the role of the database administrator? What are they responsible for? And how do they learn more and become more professional in the work they do, in what they know, and how they interact with their peers? That’s what this session is about. Yes, we’ll talk briefly about data maintenance tasks, but we’ll focus more on taking charge of our roles and becoming the development professionals we should be! (For our IT colleagues: we use “DBA” in the common development/fundraising use of the term, not the typical IT usage of the word. By all means IT professionals are very much invited and welcomed to attend this session, and it should be very helpful as you understand how to work with and support your fundraising colleagues, but the “DBA” position we’re talking about here is the fundraising office’s database coordinator/manager/power user, not a Microsoft SQL Server® DBA.)
