Annual Conference

Photos from previous Annual Conferences.

The annual conference has been the cornerstone of NACCDO since its inception.  Members rave about the unique opportunity to gather with such a specialized group of peers for knowledge, ideas, inspiration and best practices.  The nature of our work is collaborative, not competitive, which creates a thought-provoking, valuable synergy among attendees.

The annual conference is a partnership with our Public Affairs and Marketing Network partners, which means the fundraising-focused content is layered with opportunities to integrate insight into storytelling, communications and media strategies that surround the world of development.

Presentations from recent conferences are available in the Members’ section

“I remember being totally in shock at my first NACCDO conference at how open and willing to collaborate these newfound colleagues were. The information you will gather from listening and sharing ideas with this group is priceless.” — Senior Director of Development, Cleveland Clinic

A look at the AGENDA AT A GLANCE from the 2018 conference will give you an idea of the breadth and depth of session offerings at NACCDO conferences. With tracks for Major Gifts, Pipeline/Annual Giving, Strategic Initiatives and Planning Giving and offerings for novice fundraisers as well as seasoned veterans, there are learning opportunities for all cancer fundraisers.
