New Year, New Goal: Setting Your 2023 Team Objectives (GovLoop)
The annual ritual of setting performance goals for your employees can go one of two ways: It can be a check-the-box exercise that is endured and then forgotten, or it can be an opportunity to help employees understand how their personal goals intersect with the larger goals of their team and the organization. Join us online Monday, Dec. 19 at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT to hear from a government expert on how to make goal-setting a meaningful, collaborative process.

How to Defeat Fundraising’s Silent Enemy: Donor Attrition (Firespring)
In this session, Jay will help us learn how to step off of the donor acquisition treadmill and start revving up donor retention. Seven out of 10 donors give only once, but this doesn’t have to be your reality. Jay will help us understand how a 10% increase in donor retention will more than double the lifetime value of a donor and minimize our reliance on producing constant appeals for new donors.
