Growing a Strong Board/Advancement Relationship
Venue: Seaport Hotel
|Event Date/Time: Jul 18, 2011||End Date/Time: Jun 19, 2011|
Though their fiduciary responsibilities are legally critical, board members add the most value when they bring the breadth of their lives and professional experience to bear when advising an institution on meeting its goals. This holds especially true in advancement work, a unique combination of branding, customer loyalty, relationship-building, product development, and customer service. Unfortunately, crowded agendas and divergent backgrounds often keep board members and advancement leaders from developing truly effective working relationships.
Join us in Boston to strengthen the relationship between your institution's advancement function and board. This event will help:
Advancement leaders set clear board expectations, sustain momentum between board meetings, and solve targeted problems using a task-force meeting model
Board members understand essential advancement concepts, where they can contribute most during the fundraising process, and how to evaluate their advancement division's progress
Both groups identify prospects, pair donor desires with institutional needs, and understand the goals of a productive relationship
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Through an innovative combination of plenary and track-based sessions, this event will bring together advancement leaders, board members, board secretaries, and presidents to form ongoing, productive relationships.
