Past Meeting Topics:

"How to Fix Your Productivity to Amp Up Your Results" presented by Chad Barger, CNP, CFRE, Founder & Fundraising Strategist-Trainer-Coach, Productive Fundraising

Join AFP Master Trainer and #productivitynerd, Chad Barger, for a fast-paced session filled with tips (hacks) for fundraisers, executive directors and boards to raise more money, by working smarter, not harder.

This presentation focuses on improving both the fundraiser (via personal productivity hacks, e.g. managing time, email, meetings, etc.) and the fundraising (via planning, discovery, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship hacks).  Attendees will discover their own personal productivity style and have a chance to share what works for them as @fundraiserchad crowd sources even more tips from the audience.  You’ll leave this workshop energized and with 50+ ideas on how to fix your productivity to amp up your fundraising results.

Special thanks to our April Educational meeting sponsor:
