Put your perfect vision into action for 2020. This is a workshop for fundraisers and non-fundraisers alike--bring your whole development team. Our January program features three mini-workshops with local experts. We'll give you the tools you need to create a strategy to conquer this year with perfect visual acuity.

1. Conquering Your Communications Plan with Emily Cross Vayr, Development Director at Champaign County CASA. If you want to hit your 2020 development goals you'll need a coherent, executable development plan with a viable communications strategy. We'll explain how communications compliment your plan by identifying your audience, outlining the results you want, refocusing your message and deciding how best to deliver that message.

2. Demystifying Your Development Plan with Becca Guyette, CFRE, Chief Development Officer at United Way of Champaign County. Creating a comprehensive development plan for your organization can often feel overwhelming, ambitious and daunting. We're here to help. Learn how to create a plan that meets your organization's resources, capacities and needs.  

3. Developing Next-Level Donor Relationships with Tracy Wahlfeldt, Executive Director at Parkland College Foundation. When it comes to our donors, relationships are everything. Learn how to build good-quality, lasting relationships with your donors to increase resources for your organization. 

Bring your lunch...and your plans and dreams (and eyeglasses if you wear them). We'll break into small groups to chat about ways to knock our 2020 out of the park.
