11:30:00 AM - Networking
11:50:00 AM - 1:00:00 PM - Luncheon Program : Stop Hiding behind the Computer and Talk to Your Donors
|Guest Speakers:||BJ Antes, VP of Advancement, Jesuit College Preparatory|
Stop Hiding behind the Computer and Talk to Your DonorsBuilding meaningful relationships with donors is an indispensable requirement for any organization successfully seeking support for its cause. While the usage of advanced technology in the areas of prospect management, research and stewardship are almost always well worth the investment when properly employed, the latest and greatest tech gimmick will never eclipse the human mind, voice or heart. B.J. will share real life examples and anecdotes from a decade and half of secondary school advancement experience, offering tools for gift officers and advancement departments to produce considerably stronger results for their organizations.

|B.J. Antes serves as Vice President of Advancement at Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas, where he is charged with securing principal gifts while providing oversight to the areas of development, alumni relations, advancement services, events, and communications. Antes also serves as the Executive Director of the Jesuit Dallas Foundation, working with the Foundation's board of trustees who are entrusted with growing and managing the endowment. Entering his 16th year with Jesuit, Antes also directs planned giving and other internal, community and special event fundraising activities. Jesuit Dallas has enjoyed a growth in its annual giving activity in each of the last 10 years, while nearly doubling its planned gift inventory over the last six years. Antes played a key role in the success of the "We Are Jesuit" capital campaign (2007-12), which at the time marked the largest fundraising drive in the history of the school. He was intricately involved in the planned development for Jesuit's first land expansion since 1962. An avid golfer, his favorite contribution over the years might be the MAGIS Golf Classic, which is annually listed as one of the top 10 charity golf events in North Texas by the Dallas Business Journal. Antes earned a BS in accounting from Murray State University and an MBA from SMU's Cox School of Business.|
