Why You Need to Attend
Join Me at #CASEiac
We all want to travel again. Guess what? By enrolling in the CASE International Advancement conference, you get a personalized tour of fundraising in the United States and Europe—with a look inside multiple offices—without airfare and hotel fees!
Seriously, there is no better time to invest in professional development, and the International Advancement conference will up your game in remarkable ways.
With a star-studded lineup of speakers from a dozen European universities and professional schools as well as a dozen large and small U.S. universities, public and private colleges, and independent schools, this will be the widest range of perspectives you can get in Advancement expertise. I can personally vouch for the remarkable set of professionals on the ticket.
We’ll cover it all—from worldwide fundraising strategies that can help you bring in small, medium, and large gifts to tried-and-true regional approaches for soliciting alumni, friends, and companies. You’ll hear about the good, bad, and ugly scenarios that have played out over the last year and how communications and events have played vital roles in connecting us to our stakeholders.
You'll learn best practices for taking care of yourself and your team and fresh research about what it really takes to be a fundraiser today. We’ll also peek into a surprisingly positive crystal ball for a glimpse into the future of fundraising, alumni engagement, and university relations.
Join me online 29-30 June for the International Advancement conference. I am looking forward to seeing you on this flight—safe travels!

Nina Cohen Bohn
With nearly twenty years of higher educational fundraising experience, Nina is best described as an enthusiast for learning and all the opportunity that brings. This distinct attitude served her well when after university and 15 years of corporate roles in sports marketing and cable television advertising sales she transitioned to MIT Sloan and business school fundraising. It also was her foundation for the transatlantic transition to London Business School in 2005. After taking on the buildup of the Major Gifts team at LBS they were subsequently prepared for the School’s first comprehensive campaign in 2013. With a goal of £100 million, Nina led fundraising and activities in Asia Pacific as well as the Principal Gift effort contributing to the team’s overall success at raising £125M in three short years. After terrific experiences analyzing and growing the alumni engagement and fundraising programs at Royal College of Art and City Lit, she returned to LBS in 2018 to strengthen their global position as Director of Principal Gifts and External Relations Asia Pacific. Known as a consummate collaborator, Nina brings a high level of creativity and strategy to her projects which often are multi stakeholder group intensive.
