Perpetual Change → Continuous Innovation

Welcome to AFAES 2017!

November 1st 2017 | Chicago, IL


Confronted by the reality of perpetual change, businesses and institutions must learn to adapt QUICKLY and CONTINUOUSLY. In the business world, it's called INNOVATION! A year ago ADVIZOR Solutions and Pledgemine teamed up to create the Annual Fund Analytics & Execution Symposium (AFAES) as a way to connect fundraising professionals, promote best practices, and support the growth of giving in Higher Education.

This year's AFAES program is designed around 3 key imperatives: Inspire, Inform, and Invigorate. The opening presentation is designed to inspire Continuous Innovation by highlighting contemporary "best practices" outside the world of Higher Education. Next up, 2 speakers from Higher Education will inform the audience with success stories of innovative, data-driven strategies to increase giving... and then, be ready to invigorate! We’ve set aside plenty of time for a networking reception that will not only rejuvenate the spirit, but also provide an opportunity to conversationally reinforce ideas and inspiration from earlier presentations and discussions.

Check back here regularly for program updates, abstracts/details of presentations, and additional speaker bio's. Meantime, don’t leave without reserving your AFAES 2017 ticket by RSVP below.
