Woot! Just received word that my ACFRE portfolio was approved. Final step is the oral exam on the morning of January 13th. #terrified
Dare I say it? I think this is the year that the Dec 30/31 e-appeals have moved into the 'way, way too many' category. And it takes a lot for me to say that because I'm a big believer in e-communications. If I'm getting annoyed by them, imagine your regular everyday donor. The worst part? The vast majority of these e-appeals are badly written, poorly laid out, and institution-centric. Why on earth would donors give to these?
Woot! My diversity session at #AFPIcon is new and improved. My Mom Barbara McInnes) will be my co-presenter. I'll be speaking about the management and leadership best practices we've learned from the inclusive giving project, and my Mom will provide a case study of an organization (the Community Foundation) that has developed a fully diverse board, staff, culture, donor base and grantee base. It's going to be soooo awesome!
