Take a different approach to establishing best practices in your development operation: by learning from the rich and varied experiences of two senior professionals with over 50 years (combined) working in leadership AND development for Catholic schools, dioceses and organizations. Our presentation will explore best practices for 2016 advancement through FIRST a review of what absolutely does not work -- in some cases, forever, in other cases in the 2016 world of development and fundraising

2. Walk through a thorough understanding of how a 2016 major gifts program must be vastly different from the program of even just a few years ago
3. Place an effective major gifts program within the context of an office stretched for dollars and personnel
