Boards that Rock: Board Building for 2017

Board building starts with a strong understanding of what your organization needs. When you know the skills and abilities you need to lead, board recruitment and cultivation becomes a process of engagement. This workshop will introduce you to board building as a year-long process that engages the entire board. You will also learn about best practices for good governance and board leadership. 2017 can be your year for better board leadership!

The Annual Appeal: Year Round Donor Engagement

A leader in philanthropic education and leadership, Hank Rosso, once wrote, "Fundraising is the gentle art of teaching the joy of giving." When was the last time your donors felt joy by giving to your organization? National statistics suggest that 4 out of 5 new donors will not make a second gift...that's not much joy. Adam Clevenger, CFRE, a Senior Associate with Loring, Sternberg & Associates will lead a session focusing on engaging your donors to build strong and joy-filled relationships. Successful donor engagement often begins with annual giving. This session will review successful strategies in annual giving, donor communication, and stewardship.

Additional workshops will be held April 11, May 9, August 8, September 12, October 10 and November 14.
