Thank you for attending the New York Regional Conference!

Come together with donor relations and stewardship professionals from both inside and outside the greater NYC metropolitan area to network, get inspired, and learn about best practices within our profession. 

Do you live and work outside of the NYC metro area, but travel for work? Plan your spring calendar to take advantage of this opportunity, and spend a weekend in the Big Apple! Don't be shut out! This conference has sold out every year. Early registration is encouraged.


This event is eligible for 4.25 CFRE education credits.

This full day conference will include presentations on topics such as:

  • Stewarding Planned Gift Donors
  • Innovative Twists on Recognition
  • Rethinking Donor Events
  • Donor Relations Metrics
  • Personalizing Endowment Reports

And more! At the end of the conference, join us for an ice cream social - a fun and informal networking event after a great day of sessions!
