With Cassandra making use of her many SA connections, the Professional Development Committee is working on finalizing sessions. Potential topics so far are: innovative post COVID collaborations and partnerships, development/fundraising trends presented by foundation execs, a presentation from Lee Strickland (Performing Arts Houston) on their transition to a membership-based program, and more. If your organization has or you know of a collaboration that should be featured or you have another thought about a topic, please email Kass Prince directly and she will share with the PD committee. Once speakers are confirmed, a detailed schedule will be provided.
