Women in Fund Development

Join us on Wednesday, February 18 for a talk with two professionals in the field of non-profit fund development: Angie Williams, development director at the Pacific Crest Trail Association (PCTA) in Sacramento, and Cheryl Rubin, planning and development director at Western Sierra Medical Center in Grass Valley.

What is it like to be the person held responsible for the financial well-being of a large non-profit? A lot of women are very successful in this field – is there any particular reason for that? What are the key professional and personal traits needed to be successful as a development director? Come and learn from two women who are great at what they do and love doing it. Our interview format will bring out some good stories and provide time for your questions.
