PSA: You Should Have Something To Show for Every Conference You Attend

Donor Experience Certification

So, you attended a conference. 

You made the case to your supervisor that the conference would be worth your time. You cleared your schedule, declined meetings, and (hopefully) turned off email dings and message notifications.

You zoned in on candid stories of wins and lessons learned from leaders in the industry. The keynotes asked some big questions and gave you a boost of inspiration. 

You chatted with your counterparts across the country and reconnected with former colleagues and industry friends. 

Maybe you even attended OUR conference, in particular. 

At RAISE Live, we wanted folks to walk away from the two-hour event with a new joie for their work. 

We wanted attendees to reflect on their own day-to-day and bottom lines compared to what some of the most innovative teams across the country are doing. 

We wanted to give everyone at least a handful of ideas that they could actually apply to their work this week, this month, and this year.

Now, where’s the ROI?

Some of the RAISE takeaways and ideas worth borrowing are for you to bring to your boss.

Others are for you to bring to your next team meeting

And others are just for you to bring to your own workflows so that, starting now, you can be a better fundraiser, teammate, leader, and relationship builder.

Professional development is an investment of your time and energy. In some cases, it’s an investment of your or your institution’s money. Your donors expect ongoing value from their investments in your institution – you should expect the same from an investment in your professional development.

The expertise you gain at conferences should be reflected in your list of credentials.
