Luncheon Program:

Tales from the Crypt - Horrors that development professionals have survived and lived to fundraise another day

All development professionals have successes and situations that did not end well. This program will share those situations that did not have the proverbial 'happy ending' to illustrate how every fundraiser can learn from these situations: What were the early signs? What actions could have been taken to mitigate, if not eliminate, the bad outcome? What were the lessons from these painful events? Everyone enjoys sharing one's own successes and those of colleagues. Yet we frequently learn more from mistakes in the field than any other method. John Gilchrist, FAHP, CFRE and Karen Martin, MBA will share examples of these real-world horrors and what we learned from these events.

Venue: Arlington Hall at Lee Park
