Hot Topics in Cold Times - Virtual Event

  • Tuesday, December 06, 2022

  • Zoom
  • 93


  • 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 or who are registering as a guest of a VAFRE member.
  • For individuals who are not members of VAFRE and whose organizations do not have another member and who are planning to attend the program virtually.

Join us for an energetic networking event where we will crowdsource solutions to relevant year-end professional topics. Come prepared to problem-solve, share, and engage with your vibrant VAFRE community! Alan Hutson and Samantha Marrs will lead a fun-filled and creative problem-solving workshop that is guaranteed to boost your holiday spirit and leave you ready to tackle the end of year.

Our 10-minute discussions will tackle:

  1. What is keeping you up at night or what is your biggest worry, here at the end of the calendar year?
  2. What recent changes have you seen in the energy level of your donors and volunteers – how are you combatting that?
  3. How do you avoid burn-out and stress during the year-end push?
  4. Is there any tactic or strategy that you haven’t done yet fundraising-wise, but feel like you should be doing?
  5. What is one change you've made in a fundraising strategy this year that has really worked out?

In-person registration is currently limited to 80. Masks are optional, but are encouraged. Box lunches will be available for in-person registrants at the beginning of the program to eat on-site or take with you.

Registration Fees

  • Virtual registration is $8 for members ($0 for those with a Virtual Season Pass), $11 for nonmembers who work at a member organization and $15 for nonmembers. The virtual registration fees help support the technology costs associated with offering a hybrid event. 
  • In-person registration is $20 for members ($0 for those with a Season Pass or $12 for those with a Virtual Season Pass), $25 for nonmembers who work at a member organization, and $30 for guests. All in-person registrants should select their meal during the registration process.

If you are not a VAFRE member and do nor work in the office of a VAFRE member, consider becoming a member of VAFRE in order to access reduced registration fees.
