Why FORUM Leaders Summit?

To envision a way forward for both the FORUM and the prospect development profession. This will help ensure that we are doing FORUM right, and are focused on continuing to provide a unique opportunity for like-minded organizations to explore topics and investigate challenges that are often relegated to side conversations at other conferences.

Participants at the FORUM Leaders Summit will focus on the creation of The Future of Prospect Development: A Manifesto.  We will work together to create this shared vision of how prospect development can make an even greater impact on fundraising goals AND the needs of a high-functioning prospect development team.  Participants will leave with a copy of the document and a plan on how to communicate with your leadership regarding the Manifesto. Additionally, the group will spend time thinking about how we can support each other in the coming year and exploring how the FORUM can help further the conversation in years to come.
