Professional Development Events

Co-Chairs: Dan Blakemore and Doreen Thorne


Please note that the following event dates and topics are tentative and subject to change. In-person meetings will begin in August.

The AFP Northeast Ohio chapter offers many educational programs throughout the year. Sessions are planned by the programming committee and cover a wide variety of topics to benefit the range of our membership—including those new to the profession or considering a career in fundraising, as well as mid-career and seasoned professionals.

Guest speakers are identified locally, regionally, and nationally to present on a wide range of topics. Care is taken to ensure content is relevant to both large and small development shops across a wide range of industries. 


The programming committee is made up of member volunteers and welcomes your participation as it strives to provide programs that are timely and relevant while meeting the needs of our membership.

If you are interested in speaking at a professional development event, we welcome you to submit an application to speak at a professional development session. The committee will then review your application and contact you directly to confirm your participation. 

For questions about current or future programming, contact this year’s professional development committee.
