Breakout Sessions

Breakout Sessions:

Campaign 101:
Are you new to being an employee campaign manager or leadership giving ambassador? Or maybe you haven’t had the opportunity to attend this training in the past. Sign up for this session to learn the best practices that will transform your campaign into more than you thought possible. You will interact with our campaign guide and the campaign tools website to discuss how to best use these tools to support your company’s campaign growth. Walk away with next steps and an outline of your ideas for this year’s campaign.

Communications – Who, When, How:
Do you have a communication plan in place for your campaign? If you do, join to share your techniques and process. If you don’t sign up to learn more about how other companies have gone beyond email to share this important message. From email to voicemail, videos to speakers, and meetings to special events you will learn what types of messages are best to deliver through each tool, who would be the best person to deliver the message, and when is the best time for each of these to occur.

Volunteer Engagement:
You will get a chance to hear the great work we have already accomplished with our Seasons of Caring and what more is coming up for the next seasons. Learn how to get your company and colleagues involved in these volunteer opportunities already crafted for team bonding and fun. This work is continued in our Business Volunteer Network (BVN), which supports your employee volunteerism by sharing best practices about employee engagement with other local companies, engaging in meaningful BVN-sponsored volunteer projects, and learning about issues facing our community and how your company can be involved in solutions through volunteerism.

Year Round Participation
Are you looking for ways to continue engagement beyond the campaign season? Do you want to increase participation throughout the campaign? Sign up for this session to learn more about what our events offer your colleagues and how getting involved in our leadership giving groups can encourage participation and making a greater impact on their growth professionally. Come learn how you can continue to encourage giving for specific programs that are important to individuals through our digital campaigns. We will also discuss what opportunities we provide to encourage year round education on our community and the work we are all a part of to make it thrive for all.

Engaging & Retaining Donors
Does your organization have high turn over? Are you growing rapidly and always hiring? Do you have concerns around Donor Follow-Up? This session will focus on best practices for engaging new hires and retiring employees, following up with donors that haven’t seemed to get all your reminders, while also continuing to engage and seek help from current donors.

LINC, Women United, Rosenberry, and Key Club – Panel 
We will have a panel of Leadership Giving Ambassadors. They will share their story on the importance of being an ambassador and how they interact with the employee campaign manager to help support the success of the campaign. Learn the personal and professional benefits you could get out of becoming an ambassador or even a council member for each of the 4 giving groups. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions to panel members.
