Thought Leaders Breakfast
Modern Moves Management
Thursday, September 8, 2016
Union League Club
8:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.

Old school moves management is often a one-size-fits-all "coffee, site visit, appeal" routine, but modern donors expect a personalized and unique experience

Join us September 8 and learn how to: 

- Create unique personas and messaging
- Use engagement scoring to time your asks
Integrate events and volunteerism into moves management

Presented by: Brandy Keller and Rich Dietz, Abila

Sign me up! 

Thanks to our Thought Leaders Breakfast sponsor:
