2021 Kick-off event: CCAeTalks

September 21, 2021
1 p.m. - 2:15 p.m. ET

In a similar style of past CCAE “snap-sessions”, the fall kick-off event will feature multi-perspective presentations by a selection of Canadian advancement professionals through concise CCAeTalks.

From the onset of the pandemic, to now, and into the future, the work of Advancement professionals never stops, and teams have learned to “shift quickly” and kept serving their institutions and communities. How is the future of advancement work shaped with considerations of the past 14 months? What plans are in place to make the next 14 months the best yet? Stay tuned and get ready to hear how advancement professionals are tackling the lingering and long-term side effects of the pandemic.

This event is free to all CCAE members.

Thank you to CCAE’s Fall Education Program Sponsors
