Dear nonprofit executives and development and event leaders:
Do your events exhaust you just thinking about them? Do you wonder why you even produce events and what they have to do with your mission? Could they at least use some fresh thinking?
How about your corporate sponsorship efforts? Have you engaged great partners for your upcoming events? Or do you feel burned out, working so hard but getting very little in return?
Join me for a double header of workshops, presented by the Pennsylvania Association of Nonprofit Organizations, on Friday, August 26, 2011.
- Why Events Work & How to Make Yours Better, 9 a.m. to noon
- Partnering with Corporations: 5 Strategies to Increase Sponsorship Income, 1-4 p.m.
This immersion of learning will infuse new ideas, new skills, and inspiration into your efforts.
- To learn more about them and to register, visit PANO's Event page.
- To hear more about the programs, the top three reasons you'll want to join us, and the great bonuses you'll receive for registering for both, listen to my conversation with James Eirkson, PANO's Director of Education & Community Outreach.
Events and sponsorship are two incredibly powerful media. You owe it to your organization and your own professional development to invest in understanding how to use them effectively.
Hope to see you on August 26!
