    Small Staff, Big Results: Rethinking the Development Office Org Chart

    May 12, 2017 7:30 am to 9:00 am

    Many organizations are under constant pressure to increase results with fewer development staff. This session will focus on best practices for sharing responsibilities in any development office, from a one-person operation to a highly specialized department.  Drawing on specific case studies from across non-profit sectors, Chris will also address how teamwork and solid volunteer engagement and management can be leveraged to maximize the impact of every development staff role in fundraising.

    Principal & Managing Director Chris Looney serves a diverse portfolio of clients and projects across the non-profit spectrum while also managing the firm’s operations in Southern California. With nearly two decades at CCS, Chris has advised and counseled hundreds of clients, serving as a thought and action partner focused on driving philanthropy forward.

    As a member of the CCS Training Institute faculty, Chris is frequently speaking at conferences across the country. He is involved with chapters of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) throughout Southern California, was formerly on the Board of the Association of Fundraising Professionals Foundation for Philanthropy and AFP Orange County, and currently sits on the Board of the Giving Institute and Giving USA Foundation. Chris is also active with Girls Inc. of Orange County as the founder of Dads for Daughters.
