This is really great. We require new Board members to attend such a workshop, and I'm delighted we now have a cost-free option. That is a big perk of membership.

Thank you for sharing this information.  As a CEO I am always looking for good training for my board of directors.  Also, as a professor on this topic, I am always on the look out for resources and perspectives.

Midway Chamber, St. Paul, MN

I can't believe how much I learned in five days. As a small nonprofit, learning best practices about online fundraising sounds like an insurmountable task at times when the daily activities of serving clients seems more pressing.  After the four-day summit, our organization has a better grasp on what next steps for fundraising and were given many tools and suggestions to more effectively tell our story. It was definitely worth it to clear my schedule to be able to attend. I came away with action steps that we will take over this next year.
