April 12th Program: Making the Leap
As development professionals, we are cultivating a unique skill set that makes us great candidates for executive leadership. In the back of your mind have you ever wondered what the transition from Development Director to Executive Director looks and feels like? How can you prepare for a future transition? Join VAFRE on April 12 for an informal conversation with three former Development Directors who have made the leap, which will be hosted by a fellow nonprofit leader who is also a former Executive Director. The conversational format will explore the joys and challenges of becoming an Executive Director and allow plenty of time for interaction and questions.
Participate in CFRE's Job Task Analysis Survey
Every 5 years CFRE performs a Job Task Analysis survey that asks fundraisers about what comprises their day-to-day to work. This survey data is used to ensure the content of the CFRE exam aligns with what fundraisers really need to know.
