Why do we do so many special events?

Everyone loves a party! I have been convinced that this is at least some of the reason why charities seem to organize so many fetes, galas, dinners, shows, golf games etc. etc.

If they are so much fun, why do we complain about them so much?

In years of listening to what was bugging development staff, the complaint of having to organize too many events was surely at or near the top of the list.

Perhaps it is because those that propose them are not the same folk who must do the work.

However, if we were convinced that they made good fundraising sense, I really think that there would be less frustration.

I have been volunteering recently for a small largely volunteer run organization that is churning out event after event with sadly small profits. They do not know what else to do.

That is why I invited Linda Lysakowski to present the 12 Step Cure for Event Addiction. There has to be a better way!

Linda has been advising and working with organizations for many years and she has just about seen it all.

We have a new date for this webinar which is November 14, 2013 at 10 am Pacific Time.

You can register at Register Now.

Let’s make our events work for us as the community building, lead generation and great marketing buzz that they are.

I hope to see many of you online on November 14!
