Sad about Fundraising Day in New York being canceled? Don’t worry, there’s PhilanthroCon!
Chapter Leadership Brief 4.08.21
By Craig H. Shelley, CFRE, Chapter Treasurer & Managing Director, Orr Group
As the weather warms up it’s making me think of all those Friday afternoons in June, we’ve spent together at the Marriott Marquis for Fundraising Day in New York. It was always a great place to reconnect with the people and ideas that make our work so special as fundraisers. Heaped upon all the sadness of the last year is the fact that Fundraising Day won’t happen this year. Again.
Thankfully the chapter is going to replicate as much of the experience as we can virtually with PhilanthroCon. This two-half day conference will feature 2 keynotes, 12 sessions, 23 speakers, 21 small-group break-out rooms and all the info and most of the camaraderie we’ve come to expect from Fundraising Day. I’s the first conference I’ve been involved in that is really being designed specifically for the environment we’re in. The structure and the content are literally meeting us where we are to ensure a first-rate experience.
You can find more details and register here. Don’t miss it. You don’t want to end up a few months from now vaccinated, once again hanging out with your friends and being the only one who wasn’t at PhilanthroCon!
