Jim Anderson, CFRE and Alice Ferris, ACFRE, CFRE, MBA are the featured Plenary Speakers at the Association of Fundraising Professionals Sierra Nevada Chapter's "2016 Spring Training" Conference. They join industry luminaries Linda Lysokowski and Janice Gow-Petty as featured speakers.
SESSION 1: The Accidental Fundraiser: Tips and Tricks for Board Members Who Never Wanted to Fundraise in the First Place
Learn about how to determine your best role in the development process, how to communicate your organization's impact in the community, and how to make the asking part a little more rewarding for you and your nonprofit. (NOTE: This session is designed for volunteer board members and the staff that support them.)
SESSION 2: How to Survive Your Board
Whether you are a staff person or a volunteer peer, it can be frustrating and counterproductive to ignore dysfunction on your board of directors. In this session, we’ll discuss the troublesome board member archetypes and how to identify champions of change, manage the change process, and gracefully “fire” a volunteer when needed.
If something interesting is happening in the world of GoalBusters, we'll post it here. Also check our Facebook page for up to the moment updates.
