Starting an Advancement programme from scratch at the International School of Beijing compelled me to seek out advice and training from the very best people in the field. APIEF was recommended to me by a former colleague. I was deeply impressed by the passion and expertise of the team, how generous they were with their time and the amount I learned. I couldn’t have imagined it would have been as good as it was. In fact, another of my team members is participating in 2019. She’s in for a treat!
It was my first year working at the University of Sydney, my first role in Advancement and my first job after university. I was young and curious; APIEF gave me a lot to think about, a sense of confidence and a network of like-minded peers. This, and the support of a great boss and mentors, helped me move into exciting and rewarding roles in Advancement Services, Alumni Relations and Development. I was encouraged to take on new roles because I understood the fundamentals, much of which I learned through CASE.
APIEF provides experienced advancement professionals with refreshing ideas and strategies to invigorate your team and further advance your institution's strategic goals. For those newer to the profession, the institute offers you with a solid foundation in fundraising through a compact and enriching residential programme.
