Top Hands Event to Honor Certified Fundraising Professionals
On Thursday, August 29, at 5:30 p.m. (Eastern), the Development and Corporate Alliances Department will be hosting a special reception at Top Hands to recognize all those individuals who have been designated by CFRE International as Certified Fundraising Executives while providing information for those individuals who might be interested in pursuing the certification in the future.
Representatives from CFRE International and the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) will be present to answer questions. We hope you will join us to have your questions answered, to enjoy some fellowship, and to celebrate the individuals who have sought distinction in their field by acquiring this certification.
We believe this certification indicates a knowledge base that we are encouraging our professional fundraisers to seek. We will also discuss at this event changes in our training for professionals, which began this year with our collaborating with AFP to pilot their Fundamentals in Fundraising course as part of our training. There are more exciting collaborations like this to come that will increase our knowledge and ultimately our results as we seek to keep pace with the best fundraising organizations in the country.
Please email Patty Bowman at Patty.Bowman@Scouting.org to let her know you will be attending and also indicate if you are a CFRE.
