Dr. Nancy Rieves will share her knowledge and experiences in sustaining an impactful fundraising program. To be high performing, you must have your house in order—that means create effective teams, have engaged boards, and practice artful fundraising. Teams must have clarity of roles, practice canopy focus, and work a “top 100” list to combat being spread too thin. Board members are to be engaged, held accountable, and be raving advocates for your organization. Discover what really is the art to fundraising!

Registration for the April Chapter Meeting is open!
