NACCDO members value the opportunities to connect with peers in similar positions across the country. Beyond the learning experiences of the conference and webinars, they seek to share experiences and ideas and to discuss issues and challenges they have in common.
To better serve this need, NACCDO has established Affinity Groups in nine focus areas:
- Annual Giving, E-Philanthropy and Pipeline
- Board Relations
- Planned Giving
- Special Events, Third Party & Peer to Peer
- Development Operations
- Stewardship and Communications
- Campaign Strategy
- Corporate and Cause Marketing
- Major and Principal Gifts
- Chief Development Officers
Each group is chaired by a pair of NACCDO members working in that specific area. The groups vary in process and frequency of engagement, but most hold regular conference calls; many have online group communication, share documents and guides, and present at the conference.
More detailed information, including group descriptions and goals, group leader contacts and Request to Join links, can be found in the Members section.
