In every fundraising professional’s life, there comes a time when best intentions go awry. An event flopped. An angry major donor threatened never to give to your organization again. A colleague or board member misrepresents data that puts you in an awkward position.

Join us for a social event filled with laughter and stories, where you can learn from professional fundraisers on how they handled their own calamity situation.

Our distinguished professionals scheduled to share their lessons learned include:


Chris Baker, CFRE
Susan Emerson, CFRE
Julie Naporano
Christina Patel, CFRE
Siobhan Boyd-Nelson
Jane Nolan
Courtney Ross
Sharon Steele
Shiloh Todorov

To introduce themselves, you’ll hear a one-minute teaser from each presenter. Then you’ll get to choose three of the presenters to find out “the rest of the story” during roundtable discussions.

Appetizers and first drink is on us – as long as you sign up by July 3 to let us know you’ll be there. Cash bar for the rest of the evening.
