NPA Training Event: Speaking of Campaigns...
Meet our panelists for Speaking of Campaigns...Heidi Barrett and John Gregory
Park County Community Foundation aims to support all our local nonprofits in their various efforts by providing professional development, partnership, and convening around critical local issues. Campaign planning, execution, and evaluation comprise a significant chunk of what we all do to address the many pressing issues we face here in Park County.
To foster collaboration amongst our organizations and to offer encouragement, suggestions, and a little hard-earned wisdom, our fellow nonprofit pros, Heidi Barrett and John Gregory, will be featured guests at our May 16th Nonprofit ACTion Training event COMING UP IN JUST UNDER TWO WEEKS!
We're offering this fun, informal panel discussion as an opportunity for us to pick the brains of a couple of our seasoned professional colleagues. We'll talk about the ups and downs of launching successful campaigns, be it for GIVE A HOOT, coming up in July, or for any campaign throughout the year. We'll share questions, ideas, best practices, and suggestions that may benefit all of us as we move into this season of philanthropic frenzy!
Let's come together to support each other, have a few snacks, and hear what others are doing that works well, works mostly, or flat-out needs a little work.
