September 9, 2020

A Group Discussion Moderated by Joe Chickey

Join Joe Chickey, Senior Vice President, Sharpe Group, for a conversation about the successes, challenges and lessons learned by major and planned giving officers who are navigating their programs through COVID-19. Joe will share the results from the Sharpe survey “The State of Nonprofits in the Pandemic,” which includes responses form development officers nationwide. Then, we’ll breakout into groups to share what’s working and what’s not, and re-convene to examine some possible workable solutions. This is designed to be a highly interactive Zoom session. Join PGCMT as we kick off our 2020-21 season during this unusual time. This first session is offered free to all members and non-members, but you must REGISTER. Please share this information, abundantly!
