Go For It!!! Fundraising Ideas You May Not Have Tried
7:30-8:30 am
Sponsored by Vendor Relations

Session Description

Any time someone comes up with a new idea, there will be people who object to it. The objections usually fall into one of two categories. Some say the idea's no good because "We tried that before, & it didn't work." Others say it won't work because "We've never done that before." The simple truth is, when it comes to fundraising, there will always be self-appointed guardians of the status quo. As a library supporter, you get to decide what you're going to be. If you 're a status quo preserver who isn't open to new ideas, you probably want to avoid this presentation, but if you're willing to stretch yourself & try new things, show up early, sit on the front row, & bring your note pads because we're going to have a good time together!
