Event description

Description

Join us for a panel discussion about “Effectively Engaging With Trustees.”

This panel will focus on developing effective relationships with Board of Trustees members. Effective engagement with donors is an important component to successful campus leadership. This discussion will explore the varying degrees of relationships that campus leaders have with Board members. Each panelist will highlight their experience in engaging with Trustees by answering three questions: 1) what experience, if any, did you have engaging with Trustees prior to stepping into a role with direct Trustee engagement; 2) what have you learned about effective engagement with Trustees; and 3) what do you still have to learn.

Roberta Leonard, Vice President for College Advancement at Thiel College, will serve as Moderator for the panel.
