2017 Development Day Chicago
2017 Development Day Chicago is AFP Chicago’s newest take on day-long education and networking for fundraisers of all levels from diverse backgrounds. Over the decades, AFP Chicago has observed and responded to the shift in how people learn; how people want to meet and mingle with each other; and how the landscape of philanthropy continues to shift. Development Day Chicago replaces the former Midwest Conference on Philanthropy with a refreshed format that’s interactive and full of time to learn from experts, while sharing ideas with your fellow fundraisers.
2017 Development Day Chicago invites hundreds of fundraisers to the Sheraton Grand Chicago for a full day of creative sessions under the theme of the Changing Lenses of Philanthropy. We’ll offer four different tracks – or focuses - for learning, Get the Gift, Lead the Gift, Connected Fundraising, and Fundraising by Segment. Each focus will offer three sessions throughout the day and each area has at least one advanced level session to engage fundraisers at the executive end of the spectrum.There are plenty of offerings for those of us in the mid-range of our careers to those who are relatively new to the profession.
Stay tuned for more details soon. Join us for Development Day Chicago 2017! Interested in learning more? Want to be a sponsor and get in front of non-profit decision makers from across the Midwest? Contact Gail Brooks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
