CFO Hosts Annual Conference for Affiliate Foundations

The Community Foundation will welcome presidents and board members from our affiliate foundations for the 12th annual Affiliate Conference today in Springfield.

More than 60 affiliate presidents and board members plan to attend this year’s conference. The topics will include updates on CFO initiatives and programs, a look at the landscape for rural community development, “friendraising,” and breakout topics on the three goals identified in last year’s strategic planning sessions – marketing; fund development and board development.

We’re also looking forward to a lunchtime panel discussion focusing on how signature events happen with examples from several successful events hosted by the Affililate Foundations.
