Who Should Attend
This webinar is intended for advancement, development or institutional leaders and staff members who support board members. Whether you are in a campaign now or are in the initial planning phase, this program will help you better prepare your board members for their role throughout the campaign and beyond. There will be information included that you will want to share with your board, so we recommend taking individual slides and handouts from this program, personalizing them and sharing them with you board. You may also feel comfortable sharing parts of the webinar recording with them after you’ve participated (which we will send to you as a sharable link.)
The fee is $295 per institution, which allows your entire team the opportunity to participate in this professional development at the same time. If you are a current client of Gonser Gerber Advancement Consulting, that fee is just $145. You will also receive a copy of the presentation and a recording of the webinar with your registration.
On Demand Details: After your registration, you will receive a copy of the power point presentation as well as a copy of the recording.
