We are excited to share—for the first time—NACCDO is offering a special retreat for senior development leaders (i.e. second in command) within your cancer center to gather, network, learn and grow together. This session will help these emerging leaders within your cancer center build relationships with their peers from across the country so they have an arsenal of contacts to call for feedback and questions. Attendees will hear from highly successful cancer development professionals as part of the session and network with the Chief Development Officers during lunch.
