Cocktails and Calamities 2024

July 23, 2024


So much of our profession involves relationship building and oftentimes there can be awkward conversations or experiences that make us second-guess, laugh unexpectedly, or cringe altogether. Cocktails & Calamities offers a safe and reflective space for members and guests to learn from other professionals in a networking and panel environment. You’ll learn not just what happened, but the whys, how they handled it, and retrospective lessons learned.

Our 2024 slate of speakers includes:

  • Regina Alhassan, CEO, ResearchPRO
  • Carolyn Caldwell, GPC, CFRE, Founder & Lead Instructor, Unlock-Grants
  • Colby Falconer, Annual Giving Manager, Columbus Zoo and Aquarium
