Advancement Professionals' Monthly Virtual Roundtable

Facilitated by Dennis Ring
Tuesdays at 10:30am CT / 11:30am ET

Target Audience: Advancement, Development, and Philanthropy professionals with all levels of experience. We will tailor topics to participants' needs and interests.

Description: Virtual meetings will take place monthly for an hour and will be a way to build your network and create a circle of trusted colleagues with whom to share ideas and challenges. Topics will vary monthly and will be based in part on the needs and ideas of attendees. Registrants will receive the Zoom link for the monthly meetings and be added to the calendar invitation. Participants can join on any of the dates; attendance is not required for the full series.
