Description:

Topic 1: What Comes First: Knowing Analytics or Knowing Fundraising?
Have you ever wondered which was better—knowing analytics then adapting it to fundraising or having experience in fundraising and learning analytics on the job? Two professionals in the field with varying experiences discuss which approach they feel is best. Join us as they provide differing points of view for which should come first the data analyst (i.e. the chicken) or the desire to learn data analytics (i.e. the egg).

Topic 2: No Place Like Home: Where Should Prospect Development Live?
Prospect Development (i.e. Research, Prospect Management, etc.) teams often move around their divisions. Where do you think we should reside? Join us as two prospect development advocates and seasoned professionals in their respected fields in philanthropy share their passionate opinions on where Prospect Development should live. One voice says Advancement Services is the true spot and the other voice believes at the right hand of leadership.

Topic 3: To Certify or Not to Certify…that is the Question
Is certification for Prospect Development professionals the next step in the evolution of our field or is it a lot of work for little outcome. Two Prospect Development professionals asked themselves the same question and want to share with you what they think is best.
