Tangible examples of this work include, but are not limited to: Identifying PD members to nominate for awards, identifying key events/ engagements to buy tables and drive participation, developing a "dispatch" process to collect and address the needs of our members - general feedback and crisis situations; celebrate the success of our members via member spotlights, etc.
The Fundraising Committee focuses on the development and progression of our revenue pipeline. Members of this committee will help find grants and sponsorships that align with the mission of Professional Dimensions, design packages and sponsorship levels to create partnerships with organizations, inform and/or lead on the introduction of PD to prospective partners, and support the relationships with donors and clients of PD.
