Back By Popular Demand! The Breakfast Club: A Peer Circle for Directors of Small Development Shops For full-time directors of development with at least 12 months of experience and with fewer than 4 staff members (including you). Would you like help deciding where to put your energies when your “to do” list is getting longer each day? Do you find the relationship between your executive director and your board more strenuous and time-consuming than the relationship between you and your donors? Do you feel you could do a better job of “managing up” or engaging program staff in friendraising efforts? And, do you need a reminder to take care of yourself because you feel there’s barely enough time to take care of your job? The Breakfast Club is a monthly support group for people like you, directors of small development shops, to share challenges and strategies for personal and organizational success. In an informal, roundtable format facilitated by Cause Effective, members can share their insights, gain practical solutions, and remedy any on- the-job isolation or stress that they might experience. We also include panel discussions with member participants, as well as opportunities to hear from invited speakers. The Club will gather monthly on Fridays, 9:00-10:30 am, beginning on March 1, 2013. The Foundation Center will supply the warm environment and light breakfast, Cause Effective the expertise, and you and your peers… all the rest! This program is designed to be responsive to you and your needs – so your ideas will also help us shape the program as it progresses.
