7:30 to 9:30:  First Things First: Relationship-Building ($35)

Tom and Simone remind us that relationship-building is the cornerstone of all development, yet how often is our attention focused elsewhere? Let’s fix that!


9:45 to 11:30: Myths and Mistakes: Simone’s Pet Peeves (included)

“I feel like I’m always complaining,” Simone says, but there’s lots to complain about. This interactive session will invite you to bring your own pet peeves and we’ll discuss how to address them.

9:45 to 11:30:  Direct Mail 101 with Professor Tom (included)

Direct mail is critical to donor acquisition. Tom will lead the search for the good, bad and ugly of direct mail communication, and use some local examples to help us do “more better.”

Noon to 1:30: The Science of Modern Fundraising ($35) – SOLD OUT
CFRE’s and other senior professionals are invited to join Tom and Simone for a roundtable lunch entitled “The Science of Modern Fundraising.” Modern research is leading to new strategies. What are they? How can they strengthen the tried and true? How can we get better results? (Space is limited).
