Master Series: Effective Leadership, Successful Fundraising

May 8-9: Bill Stanczykiewicz is back!

By popular request, Bill Stanczykiewicz will return to Nashville for a special two-day Master Series session called "Effective Leadership, Successful Fundraising" on May 8-9.  Master Series was created when CNM determined a need for our members: training for advanced nonprofit professionals. CNM invites top speakers from around the country to present information that benefits both experienced and developing leaders, and facilitates meaningful discussion. 
“Effective Leadership, Successful Fundraising” is designed especially for advanced nonprofit leaders, fundraising executives, and CEOs. In this course, participants will learn how to develop and cast vision for their fundraising operation, recruit and retain talent, continually innovate, lead through consensus, address setbacks, and hold colleagues accountable for results.
Fundraising expert Bill Stanczykiewicz of the renowned Lilly Family School of Philanthropy of Indiana University presented the morning keynote at CNM’s Bridge to Excellence in 2017, as well as a breakout session and a leadership breakfast the following day. Bill received rave reviews from conference attendees, and CNM received many requests to bring Bill back for additional trainings. We are thrilled to offer this opportunity in 2018!
