Lunch Program (Noon-1:15pm) 

Is a Major Campaign in your organization’s future?

Should it be?  Why?  And HOW? 

Join David Goettler of Goettler & Associates, as he talks through the various considerations that development teams and organization leaders should consider and examine in looking ahead to future needs.

Whether a major campaign is imminent, or if you’re just trying to wrap your head around whether or not your organization SHOULD be considering one in the future, Dave’s presentation will help you understand a range of aspects to take into consideration—before any course of action is determined.


Join Central Ohio AFP to learn the seven essential elements for campaign success, and how to address them in the earliest phases of planning. Together, we’ll examine the necessary tools required for a successful endeavor, and discuss ways of scaling activities to suit organizations and causes of many shapes and sizes.
