Development Day Chicago: The Changing Lens of Philanthropy

October 3, 2017

8:30 AM - 5:30 PM

AFP Chicago's Midwest Conference is now Development Day!  Development Day Chicago 2017 is AFP Chicago’s newest take on day-long education and networking for fundraisers of all levels from diverse backgrounds. Over the decades, AFP Chicago has observed and responded to the shift in how people learn; how people want to meet and mingle with each other; and how the landscape of philanthropy continues to shift. Development Day Chicago replaces the former Midwest Conference on Philanthropy with a refreshed format that’s interactive and full of time to learn from experts while sharing ideas with your fellow fundraisers.

Development Day Chicago 2017 invites hundreds of fundraisers to the Sheraton Grand Chicago for a full day of creative sessions under the theme of the Changing Lens of Philanthropy. We’ll offer four different tracks – or focuses -  for learning, Get the Gift, Lead the Gift, Connected Fundraising, and Fundraising by Segment. Each focus will offer three sessions throughout the day and each area has at least one advanced level session to engage fundraisers at the executive end of the spectrum.There are plenty of offerings for those of us in the mid-range of our careers to those who are relatively new to the profession.

Join us for Development Day Chicago 2017!  All AFP members, regardless of what chapter they belong to, receive the member pricing.

Early bird member $275, after September 1st $300

Early bird non-member $325, after September 1st $350
