MORNING SESSION (Breakfast Include) - 8:00 am - 11:00 am - Session for Fundraising Professionals, Executive Directors and Board Members

Putting Stuff Together and Making It Work
Fundraising...Leaders and Leadership...Planning:   How's it Going at Your Place?

Presented by:  Simone P. Joyaux, ACFRE

 Is your development office located in its own silo, disconnected from program and planning and other important stuff?  

Are you welcome at the right tables in your organization?

Does your CEO (and do your staff colleagues) understand fundraising?

Ah, the sad truth:  Sometimes bosses disconnect connections and deny facts.  Too many colleagues see fundraising as distasteful.  And maybe you're too chicken (or too tired) to fight them all. 

Join this hard-hitting, truth-telling workshop.

  • Together we'll outline what bosses need to know about fundraising - and how to tell them (Better yet, bring them along to the workshop!)
  • We will explore how to destroy silos, build connections, and get at the right tables, including the institutional strategic planning table.
  • We will fight the good fight as leaders partnering with other true leaders.

P.S.  You'll leave with a great handout to use back at the office!

 

LUNCH SESSION - 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM AFP Greater New Orleans Chapter Luncheon - Session for AFP Members and Guests

Creating a Fund Development Plan that Produces Ownership and Results

Presented by Simone P. Joyaux, ACFRE

  How (and who) creates your plan   is as important as the resulting     plan. 

  Remember!  Fundraising is a        team sport - and an effective  process builds ownership and accountability among staff and board. 

Your fund development plan includes donor centrism and relationship building and loyalty and solicitation and measures and accountabilities and...Well, you get the picture!

This session will help you re-think how you create your fund development plan and what should be included in the plan.  (And, by the way, body of knowledge and best practice trumps any personal opinions from people who don't know their stuff.)

Join us for ths one-of-a-kind opportunity to interact with one of the world's most sought-after speakers on professional fundraising!
