Engaging the Board in Fundraising

It is commonly assumed that boards should be involved in fundraising.  But should they?  And if so, how can it be done well?  Join us for this Extended AFP Seminar, as our guest presenter, Brent A. Hafele, M.A., will explore the implications of board involvement in fundraising and how to practically do it.  As a former development director and executive director, Brent has lived these questions out first hand.  In this session, Brent will encourage and empower participants to identify next steps for building their board member's confidence and effectiveness in fundraising.
