CFRE International will convene a first of its kind, in-person, CFRE Advisory Council Conference to take place in Alexandria, VA over the weekend of March 21-22, 2015. The conference will bring together Advisory Council Representatives from CFRE International’s Participating Organisations, Participating Organisation heads of staff, and the CFRE International Board of Directors and staff to strengthen ties between our organisations and develop a shared vision and goals for how the organisations can most effectively work together to build a stronger, more effective, global philanthropic sector through certification for fundraising professionals.
In describing the vision for the conference, CFRE International Board member and Advisory Council Chair Roly Owers, M.A., M.Sc., CFRE said “by bringing together CFRE International leadership and leadership from our Participating Organisations, in a facilitated conference setting, we will energise these important relationships, deepen our shared understanding of the complimentary nature of our organisational missions, and set the stage for new collaboration.”
CFRE International Participating Organisations endorse the CFRE credential and act as advocates to encourage professional certification within their constituencies. The CFRE Advisory Council is made up of an appointed representative from each Participating Organisation and assists the CFRE International Board of Directors and staff in addressing issues affecting the profession that may impact the credential, identifying services that CFRE International might provide and disseminating timely information on CFRE International.
