By far one of the largest and most common elephants in the board room is the sound of crickets when you broach fundraising. Some board members justify this by saying, “We’re not a fundraising board.” Others believe their gifts of time more than make up for them not engaging in the development process.

Join national speaker and thought leader, Stacey Wedding, a BoardSource Certified Governance Consultant, as she shares common fundraising elephants in the board room and provides practical ideas, structures and systems on how to tackle them—one bite at a time.

Following our time together, you will:

  • Identify the barriers that prevent board members from engaging in fund development
  • Learn how the entire board process—from recruitment to retention of board members—impacts your board’s fundraising performance
  • Gain insight and practical tools you can put into action immediately with your board members

$40 – Current AFP Members
