New Year / New You

Planning your best career. Start 2020 by investing time in you!
In addition to our regular program, this special January program includes an added lunch time session for Executive Level fundraising professionals. 


Session 1: Designing Your Career Path in Fundraising     
10:30 AM-12:00 PM 
$40 for non-member $20 for members
Whether you are just starting out in fundraising or are 5 or 20 years into your profession; planning your career is always a challenge. How do I change my focus or path? How do I get to a bigger (or smaller?) organization. What’s a winning resume look like in 2020?
Our January AFP presenter, Bob Fisher, is a wealth of knowledge and experience on career advancement in development. Learn key elements of career planning: are you asking for what you need to take the next step up? Are you positioning yourself to increase your professional network, salary potential and skill set? Are you a manager looking to help your staff build their career?
This workshop is all about best practices in development career planning. Bring your questions!
