Event description

Description

This two-day event (Thursday Pre-Conference Master Classes & Friday Full Day Educational Sessions) is for nonprofit leadership, fundraisers, volunteers, board members, and charitable advisers. Attendees will experience a mix of professional development and networking, learning tools and resources to improve the your nonprofit organization!

The AFP Northeastern Pennsylvania Chapter is grateful to the support of our conference partners including Wilkes University and Dawe Consulting who have made significant contirbutions to keep this conference affordable and accesible to all organizations.

We are thrilled about the caliber of master teachers and trainers that are part of the conference faculty, all who are significantly contributing their time and talent as well. The workshops offered during the Nonprofit Leadership Institute typically are full-day workshops that cost at least $200 to attend and the half-day master classes at least $129. Friday’s Philanthropy Forum takes a full day of workshops and sessions typically seen at the AFP International Conference (with the same presenters) which costs $199 for a one-day pass and brings it to Northeastern PA.

Our Faculty: Our faculty create opportunity by teaching and mentoring every day. All of our faculty hold both advanced degrees or certifications noting academic study plus decades of “in the field” experience as development directors, vice presidents of advancement, executive directors and chief executives.

Workshop Schedule: From our four pre-conference master classes on Thursday, 10/12 to our full day conference on Friday, 10/13, the AFP Nonprofit Institute and Philanthropy Forum, conference attendees will have the opportunity to participate in workshops, training, and affinity networking sessions.

Host Venue: The 2017 AFP Northeastern Pennsylvania Chapter Conference will be hosted at Wilkes University's Sidhu School of Business & Leadership. The school combines a strong core business education with the development of skills for authentic leadership and ethical business practices for both undergraduate and graduate studies.

FAQs

What's the refund policy?

Full Refund available until 9/20/2017, after which a $30 fee will be retained to cover unrecoverable expenses.

Can I update my registration information?

Yes, simply contact john@daweconsutling.com with the new information.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?

In short, yes. AFP members may transfer their registration to another member. If an AFP member registration is being transferred to a not-yet-member, either the original registrant or the new attendee must pay the difference.

Are there rates for partial days or individual workshops?

We are not able to provide partial day rates or individual workshop rates, with the exception of a limited number of Thursday only registrations for those wishing to attend the full day Nonprofit Leadership Institute but who may not be able to attend the Friday conference.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Yes, however see the answer to "ticket transfer" above if you are an AFP member transferring to a not-yet-member. Keep in mind that typically organizations are not members of AFP, individuals are. For example, Sue is Director of Development at Nonprofit X and is an AFP member. She won't be able to attend but wants to send Jeff, Nonprofit X's assistant director who is not a member. Jeff is not an AFP member and would pay the not-yet-member rate.

Are there hotel rooms available?
Yes, we have a special rate at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel that will be open for booking on August 1.

Can I register with a paper check?
Yes, e-mail john@daweconsutling.com with the subject line FORUM Manual Registration for how to proceed.
