AFPNEO (Association for Fundraising Professionals-Northeast Ohio Chapter) will present the 2017 Career Success Institute (CSI) on March 17th at Kent State University at Stark (North Canton). The CSI professional development workshop focuses on expanding best practices in fundraising for development professionals, board members, volunteers and professional advisors.
This year’s CSI – FILL YOUR POT WITH FUNDRAISING GOLD – features a new intensive workshop format led by Dr. Jerry Panas, Executive Partner of Jerold Panas, Linzy & Partners—one of the nation’s most highly regarded firms in the field of campaign services and financial resource development. His books are considered the most significant in the field. ASKING is the largest selling in the history of fundraising, and three are considered classics. In 2016, he was voted “America’s #1 Fundraising Expert” in Philanthropy Media. Because of the prominence of the firm and the impact of his writing, there are few who have had a greater influence in the history of the profession.
CSI Chair, Barbara Mucci adds “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn from the leading expert in the world of philanthropy. Jerry’s high energy, interactive, “What I’ve Learned in 40 Years of Fundraising” program is a “must see” for first-time to long-time development officers, non-profit managers, board members and community volunteers in the region.”
