Hi all,
This is not an APRA-NW event, but might be of interest to some of my
fellow South-Sounders.

We will be showing a webinar next Thursday the 11th from Bentz Whaley
Flessner about Development hiring and retention strategies. If anyone
wants to join us, we're asking for $10 from each attendee to help defray
the costs of the webinar, or $5 for each additional person from an
organization.

Details are below.
Thanks,
Jess

Become a Talent Magnet: Staffing Issues in Today's Environment

The demand for major gift fundraisers has reached a fever pitch.
Development offices are staffing up, new charities are springing up, and
smaller shops, once satisfied with annual giving, are reaching out to
major and planned giving. We are not grooming new major gifts officers
to satisfy the demand. Top salaries, benefits, and incentives are
creating a competitive edge leading to time-consuming searches, high
turnover, and escalating salaries. The most pressing challenge fund
raisers face is "staffing issues in the development office" (annual
survey of 400 development officers released by the Association of
Fundraising Professionals). We will discuss how to respond and play into
this market successfully.
