Many of the subscribers to my blog have attended Academic Impressions conferences. I know this because I’ve met many of you through AI events! For those unfamiliar, Academic Impressions is a professional development content company focused on higher education professionals. But, even if you serve another type of non-profit, they offer outstanding conference and webcast content and I would encourage any development professional to consider attending one of their offerings.
Recently, I had the privilege of sitting down with AI for an interview which was published in their “Higher Ed Impact: Weekly Analysis” e-newsletter. I discussed 3 development concepts that new academic leaders must master if they are to be successful in the development process. Even if you aren’t in higher education, these 3 concepts can help you prepare other leaders of your organization to be successful in development work.
And if you are in higher education and are interested in strengthening the ways in which you partner with deans, department chairs, or other faculty, check out Session 2 of the webcast “50 Things Every Department Chair Should Know” on March 19. I’ll be answering 10 important questions about fundraising for academic leaders so that they will better understand, appreciate, and participate in your work!
