Hiring or Replacing Your Development Director:

Hiring a development director is an exciting (and scary) time for most nonprofits. Where do you find a development director, and what should you look for? Is experience necessary, and isn’t finding an experienced development officer expensive? Can you hire someone from within your organization and, if so, what challenges will that present? How will your organization’s staff and board welcome a new development person and set them up to succeed?


Just a sampling of what this webinar will cover:

  • What a development officer actually does (It might not be what you think)
  • Where to find a development director
  • What qualities to look for
  • Where the development office fits into your organizational structure
  • Does the development office need to support staff in order to grow?
  • What role do the executive director and board play, once we have development staff?
  • What should we expect during the first 100 days?
  • How do we measure whether the development program is effective?
