Important Statement on COVID Protocols

For the safety of all of our members and guests, VAFRE strongly encourages all individuals attending our programs in-person to be vaccinated. Virtual registration is available for those who are not vaccinated or who do not feel comfortable meeting in person.

Since we are meeting in a government owned building, masks will be required for all participants and we will be practicing social distancing. In-person registration will be limited to 40 individuals. Box lunches will be available for in-person registrants at the end of the program to eat on-site or take with you.

Our Program

Accountants are from Mars, Fundraisers are from Venus. While we all may accept that as truth, why is it sometimes so challenging to bring together the two functions that share one very important focus - the money?!?!

Explore and contrast the priorities that drive each of the departments (e.g. Silos!) to discover those collaborative strategies you can implement that will speak only to your organization's financial success! Be sure to invite your Finance folks to  participate!

Approved for 1 hour of CFRE credit.
