WEBINAR: "State of the Sector & Forecast for 2017"
Presented by AFP International Interim President & CEO Jason R. Lee, J.D. & Mark Hrywna, NonProfit Times

The amount of data, surveys, research and reports about fundraising and the nonprofit sector is both vast and dizzying.  Fundraisers barely have enough time to take a step back and see how their own fundraising is faring, much less scan the sector for key trends to get a sense of the big picture.  This webinar, pulls together the data from AFP's annual State of the Sector report and puts it into a conversational framework, highlighting the key trends and ideas of 2016 and also forecasts what to be looking out for in 2017. 


At the end of this session participants will:

  1. Be familiar with what the trends and highlights were for the industry in 2016
  2. Based on this data have a sense of what will be trending in 2017. 
  3. Discuss how these trends may play our in our Central Texas communities.
