March 28  Best Practices In Fundraising: for Boards, Volunteers and Staff
Presented by Mark R. Wilkison, Sr. VP at Sinclair, Townes & Company in Atlanta, GA    

How does your organization stack up against others in implementing best practices in your fundraising program?  This presentation will cover some of the best practices we have found on the local, regional and national level with regard to annual, capital, and planned gifts.  Best practices for boards, volunteers and staff are also covered.  You will have the opportunity to hear many ideas and then be able to implement those which are applicable to your organization.

He has also served as Chief Development Officer for the International Life Sciences Institute and as Executive Vice President of Phi Gamma Delta Educational Foundation.   Mark received his B.S. from the University of Vermont.
