Alice Ferris, ACFRE will present "Don’t Put All Your Eggs in the Digital Basket: Multimedia Still Matters" in Toronto at Digital Leap Canada. In this session, we’ll focus on how digital media and traditional media work together to create successful campaigns. How can you identify the characteristics of your ideal audience? How can you use a mix of online and offline channels? And what are the right tools and messages to reach your audience where they are? (NOTE: Full presentation will be live May 4th.)
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.

Everyone likes a good party, but what do you do when you know in your heart that a fundraising event has reached the end of its effective life? Rather than let the party go on, conduct an objective event audit and let the facts help you decide what do to next.
In this practical session, we'll discuss the signs of a failing event, the tools to analyze the event's effective return, ways to soften the blow to volunteers of ending a losing program, and strategies to evaluate new events before they even happen.
