September Morning Forum | September 30

Join us for 3 breakout sessions for Development Professionals:

  • Challenge Grants - Do They Work? Facilitated by Tom Lawrence (The Leon Levine Foundation) and Jenni Gaisbauer, CFRE (Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Foundation)
  • Discovering Yourself and Your Nonprofit.  Facilitated by Stephen Belenky and Neil Belenky (Belenky Consulting) 
    A Development Professional's Pathway to Success  
    No workshop or certification alone can guarantee your success as a development professional. It is the combination of these tools in conjunction with mentorship, on-the-job training and, above all else, discovering yourself and your nonprofit that will create a pathway to success.  During our time together, we will address this subject in two parts: 
    1.       What can you do to discover, grow and market yourself as a development professional?
    2.       How can you evaluate your nonprofit's capacity to support you and effective development?
  • Check Yourself Before You Wreck Yourself - Using the Fundraising Fitness Test to Measure Your Department's Success. Robert Touchstone, CFRE (Carolina Raptor Center)
