Join us for our Fall Masters’ Program where panel guest speakers Linda Lyon and Scott Staub will share their experiences transitioning from Development Director to Executive Director.

They will discuss topics like:

  • The trials and tribulations of reporting to the Board of Directors
  • What to do during your first 6 months in your new role.
