We're thrilled to share registration is NOW OPEN for our annual Spring Symposium!

We've listened to our members and this year, we're going Back to Basics with those hard fundraising skills.

Prepare to learn from fundraising leaders, Paula Attfield and Pamela Ross, who will guide us through two important topics.

First, we'll learn about the Fundraising Narrative - how can we better position administrative expenses and cost ratios when talking to donors or your board?

Second, we'll dive into how to read financial statements, how to calculate cost rations, and the why of that metric.

There will also be a breakout session and plenty of time for networking.

Plan to join us June 10 in Innisfil!
