Case as Conversation: Creating a Case Your Volunteers, Leadership, and Staff Will Really Use

Friday, February 13, 2015 •  8:30 - 10:30 a.m. at Petterino's Banquets,50 W. Randolph, Chicago

Why do so many case statements end up sitting in your cyber-files? 
How can you inspire volunteers to express your case in their words? How can a good case empower fundraisers to feel confident in critical donor conversations?

In this interactive session, Campbell & Company’s Andy Brommel (Director of Communications Consulting) and Pat Chesnut (Consultant/Writer) and the Chicago History Museum's President Gary T. Johnson will look beyond the traditional “case statement” to discuss new ways of developing your case—beginning from the idea that high-level fundraising is all about conversations.
