International Advancement: Global Strategies for Alumni Relations and Fundraising

Feb. 1 - 3, 2017
Grand Hyatt New York
New York, N.Y., United States


In collaboration with NAFSA: Association of International Educators

International advancement as a field is gaining prominence as institutions are challenged to communicate. International fundraising is quickly becoming an essential component of many successful development programs; international alumni relations is a growing field as institutions maintain connections with graduates who choose to move overseas—or return home. Whether your institution is public or private, large or small in size, secondary, college or post-graduate, each of us has a compelling reason to pursue advancement activities abroad. Discover strategic and sustainable techniques that can help increase the effectiveness of your international engagement and development programs.

This conference is designed for professionals with mid- and senior-level responsibility.

Program starts midday on Wednesday and ends midday on Friday.
