Limited Capacity seats available

Is your Board driving you crazy? Maybe they’re trying to micro manage your fundraising efforts. Or maybe despite all your efforts, they refuse to help you with fundraising. No matter what a Board decides to do, or decides not to do, it always impacts you as a fundraiser.  If your Board is driving you crazy or, you think it is about to, then this session is for you. Tony Myers has been a member of more than five non-profit Boards and worked with more than a dozen others. Join Tony and explore with him how you can improve your relationship with your Board and enhance your fundraising efforts.

Limited Capacity seats available

Tony Myers, CFRE, Ph.D., M.A., LL.B With the average life expectancy of a major gift fundraiser with any one organization being 18 months – it means that every year and a half many fundraisers are either changing jobs, or looking for work.
You might be one of those people.  Or you may be one of those people in the very near future.  Wouldn’t you just love to be ready for your next move. Join Tony Myers and Diane Lloyd as they explore life and career transitions and how you might want to be better prepared for them as you get ready for your next move.
Learning Objectives:
  1. Examine the characteristics of your most satisfying work
  2. Explore and identify some of the primary strengths you exercise as a professional
  3. Dream out loud about the things you want in an ideal job
  4. Discover how values and work, when aligned, can bring focus and energy   
  5. Learn how you too, can create a plan for a better future
