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. 

What do you do?

You attend this year’s event in July, filled with social and educational time, laughter and stories. You’ll have the chance to learn from professional fundraisers how they handled their own calamity situation, and pick up some great tips for how to deal with any that come your way.
Our distinguished seasoned professionals scheduled to share their lessons learned include:

Erin Blue
Christine Donovan, JD
Patty Hiatt
Leigh Ann Miller
Nanon Morrison
Michael O’Sullivan
Lori Hunter Overmyer, MBA, CFRE
Christina Patel
Marti Ridley
Scott Solomon
Beginning with a TED talk format, you’ll hear a one-minute teaser from each. Then you’ll get to choose three of the presenters to find out “the rest of the story” during rotating roundtable discussions. 
For just $5, the appetizers and two drinks are on us – as long as you pre-register by July 5 to let us know you’ll be there.  Cash bar for the rest of the evening.
