Networking Opportunities

Thursday Night Reception

Join us on the first evening of the Forum at our Thursday Night Reception which will happen on Thursday, June 7 at 5:00 p.m. at the Convention Center.  


Affinity Seating

Connect with colleagues at similar organizations! To help you meet colleagues in your specific area of fundraising (e.g., environment, arts, education, etc.), we’ll coordinate seating during parts of the Forum. Keep your eyes peeled for affinity tables and grab a seat with colleagues who can brainstorm ideas that are specific to your sector. Or sit at a table where you can learn and connect with colleagues from different sectors. 


Doctors Are In

Need some career advice? Sign up onsite for a “Doctors Are In” session with a seasoned fundraising professional. These career “check-ups” (happening during a networking break both Thursday and Friday) are first-come, first-served and always book up fast, so show up early, make a beeline to the "Doctors Are In" table and get your name on the list.  


Job Discoveries Lounge

Looking for a job? Or a great candidate? Be sure to stop by the Job Discoveries Lounge (happening during a morning networking break both Thursday and Friday), where you can check out our online job board, hand out your business cards, or share job descriptions for open positions at your organization.
