Uncomfortable Conversations with Virginia Thumm, Virginia Fundraising Consultants - AFP Central Va Chapter Session - 10-12-2023
From James Wasilewski
As fundraisers and volunteers, we are often faced with delicate situations – whether they be with donors, Board members, colleagues, or even supervisors.
These conversations can be simply uncomfortable or touch on ethical dilemmas. In this interactive session, we will explore several sample difficult situations and discuss how best to handle them. Participants are also encouraged to bring their own questions or situations for discussion.
