  • A special offer for participants in IOP programs to join VAFRE for a complimentary meeting.
  • For those individuals who are members of VAFRE.
  • For individuals who are not personally members of VAFRE but whose organization has one or more paid members.
  • For individuals who are not members of VAFRE and whose organizations do not have another member.

How close is too close? Development professionals are expected to cultivate close relationships with donors. Learn how to establish, and how to help your staff establish, respectful boundaries and manage uncomfortable situations in your interactions on behalf of your NPO.

Make plans to join us on Tuesday, March 5th, as we welcome Whitney Fogg, SHRM-CP, (pictured at right) Human Resources Director at The Community Idea Stations, to discuss what is and is not appropriate.

This session is approved for one hour of CFRE credit.
