Special Event Planning

Monday, May 21, 2012  
9:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Discover the essentials to make your Special Event "special" and worth doing for your nonprofit organization. Find out why some organizations succeed while others spin their wheels and have poor results. This workshop will help you and your decision-makers determine if all the preparation and work behind the scenes to make your event look effortless are possible and potentially profitable. Also, explore creative ideas that can change fun into "funds."

The presenter, Connie Schwartz, CFRE, is an accomplished manager and professional in the nonprofit sector with extensive knowledge in fundraising, communications and planning. She has taught graduate level courses on nonprofit management at Chatham University and the University of Pittsburgh, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs. Connie is a former President of the Western PA Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals and the recipient of their 2007 Outstanding Fundraising Executive Award.
