This was such a comprehensive overview of the Development Office! Most useful were the "how-to" portions and the samples in the handouts, as well as the high-level strategic insight into the development role. Not a day has passed that I haven't used at least one of the skills or tips I learned!Kate Rosenberg, Director of Development
