As a development officer, it is important to your professional success to build credibility and rapport with the finance team at your institution – demonstrating basic knowledge of the interplay between these two worlds, and being able to “talk the talk” at a very high level.
Clare Golla, Vice President with Bernstein Global Wealth Management, will present “Position Yourself for Long-Term Success: Filling the Sustainability Gap with Fundraising.” Clare has also worked in development, and understands our role as well as that of our CFOs. Come explore ways to better integrate and align your fundraising goals with those of the finance team you work with every day.
