Event Description

Fundraising Event Solutions

Samantha Swaim, Principal, Swaim Strategies

As you prepare for upcoming spring events and launch planning for summer and fall events this session will be focused on solutions to keep things on track through the waves of COVID. We will provide you some simple strategies to move forward and get out of the "wait and see" mindset. A few easy solutions can get your team on board and moving forward. We will talk about national trends, hybrid formats and opportunities to increase your audience participation and grow your donor base. Additionally we will talk about COVID safety to consider when planning to gather people. If you need help with your upcoming event, this is a session for you.

Due to the increasing COVID-19 cases and rise of the Omicron variant, this network session will be held virtually via Zoom.

Automatic closed captioning via Zoom is turned on by default for all NAO virtual sessions. For other accommodation requests, please contact us at Advanced notice of at least 10 days is appreciated.
