Program Title:
"Effective Prospect Cultivation Events"

The first step with any prospect is to introduce your organization and projects through a series of cultivation tactics.   The Cultivation Event has successfully proven to be a way to initiate new relationships with prospects and donors with board members,  volunteers and staff participating.  Barbara H. McColm, associate with M. Gale & Associates, LLC, will share the steps of how to conduct host events while  Clint Riley, Executive Director of Texas Center for Arts + Academics, will share  success stories and outcomes of cultivation events showcasing his organization.
