Why aren’t our board members more engaged in the friend-raising and fundraising we need from them? What is reasonable for us to expect from them? How can we best support their efforts to help further our missions and reach our fundraising goals? As a new year begins, let’s take a fresh look at a challenge that so many institutions and organizations struggle with overcoming. Join us for this interactive session, as Milton Key shares best practices and useful tips from leading experts in our field, as well as from his own experience with boards over the past 25 years.
A long-time member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP), Milton has served in several leadership positions for AFP, including board member and president of the Greater Dallas Chapter and as a member of the AFP International Board of Directors. He obtained his Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) credential in 1996. In 2014, the AFP Greater Dallas Chapter recognized Milton as its Outstanding Fundraising Executive.
