Program Description: The challenges encountered by an association fundraiser can make us lose sleep. These challenges could be:
• Working with your communications, meetings, or finance department
• Gaining consensus from leadership on funding priorities
• Managing and supporting volunteers
• Providing value to your association’s sponsors or your Foundations supporters
• Responsibility of fundraising being priority #2 in your role
• Managing all the aspects of fundraising, basically a full business, by yourself - the marketing (your brand and case for support), sales (solicitation), communications (donor dollars at work), and customer service (donor relations)

Too often we’re so busy tackling these challenges that we become siloed in our day in and day out work and rarely take time to network with our community and reach out to our fellow comrades in non-dues revenue.
Let’s meet to share our individual challenges, see the trends among our community, and then as a group provide input and ideas to solve them.
Bring a Guest 
We know one is a lonely number. That’s why we invite you to bring a guest to a Shared Interest Group meeting. Not a member? No problem. Non-members can attend one complimentary event before becoming a member of Association Forum. Join others with shared interests and discuss issues, ideas and trends. All guests must be pre-registered!
