We had nearly 600 colleagues join us from across the state at the sessions in April and we want to do it again. Let’s come back together and share our stories, new “best” practices, and ways we have adapted to make the best of this situation. We’ve developed different sessions geared toward our major disciplines: Annual Giving, University Events, Marketing & Communications, Alumni Engagement, Donor Relations, and Blended Giving. We’re offering each at different times (see below), so you can attend as many as you like and hear what’s happening around the advancement world.
Brought to you by SUNYCUAD and led by seasoned SUNY pros… because it’s never been more important to stay connected.
Please email SUNYCUAD President Kerry Gotham at firstname.lastname@example.org for links and additional information on joining each forum.
SUNYCUAD Marketing & Communications Forum
Tuesday June 2, 11 a.m. to Noon
Hosted by Taras Kufel, Manager of Digital Engagement, SUNY System
Re-opening, re-engaging, re-vising communications strategy. We want to hear from you on what is taking place locally and what you are noticing in higher ed for engaging with your stakeholders as we try to find a way back to a (new) normal. How are you finding ways to engage with new and old students and stakeholders when we’ve long been so dependent on the in-person experience? We want to hear about your new way of growing engagement leading up to the fall semester. If you want to share ideas or discuss specifics, email Taras.Kufel@suny.edu.
