Q: Your CASE DI program is days (weeks) of giving. What practical advice can you give CASE DI members now about the key to making their efforts as successful as possible?

Brenda: Don’t underestimate the power of your network! Whether you are preparing for a job search or are looking for top talent, leveraging your network is vital. The current job market has become extremely competitive and networking is crucial to a successful search.

Q: Tell us why CASE DI members will not want to miss this program!

Brenda: Launching your own giving week can seem like a daunting task—especially when resources are stretched thin. We held our first giving week with minimal time and staff. We will share how our giving week helped us surpass our annual fund goals and how we used what we learned to make our second giving week even better!
