As the executive director, you are not expected to be the expert on fundraising. However, you are expected to be your organization’s leader on fundraising, and to be successful in that role there are things that you need to know and understand about how successful fundraising is accomplished. Come to this session to gain key fundraising knowledge and skills, including understanding your responsibilities, how to increase board member involvement, and how to hire and effectively support a development director. Two executive directors – one with decades of experience and one relatively new to the job – will share their insights.
