Top take-aways from the 2019 CCAE Advancement Services Summit

Advancement Services Summit
November 25-26, 2019

Support from Senior Leadership is paramount

It is of great importance to gain the support of Senior Leadership for any and all projects and initiatives to create success. It builds a culture of investment and trust, that allows for easier paths for your advancement services team.

Business glossaries make an impact

Putting more structure into processes, specifically within CRM’s is a highly useful tool and can be incorporated into any institution at any level.

Build a data culture

By using data in decision making, communicating data in meaningful relevant ways and integrating it into our way of life, you build a solid base for any initiative your institution takes - that can be repeatedly measured and improved upon.

Many thanks to our speakers for presenting a high-quality program and to 2019 Advancement Services Summit sponsor iModules.
