Foundations for Success and Longevity in Your Development Career

January 31 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Have you considered the factors that contribute to success in fundraising? Designed for early to mid-career development professionals, this course will help you set a foundation for success and longevity in your development career. Join us to discuss why development officers often leave organizations after just a few years and consider how strong relationships, best practices, and a culture of philanthropy can help you strive for longevity in your role and benefit both you and the organization you serve.

During this session, participants will:

  • Discover how a wider view of success – beyond the dollars you raise – can help raise more money and boost your satisfaction
  • Learn to build the foundation for success when you are new to an organization.
  • Understand how establishing strong relationships within your organization can be vital to your success in development and to your organization’s health.
  • Identify common pitfalls that make development professionals want to leave an organization and discuss ways to avoid or overcome them.
