Faculty Training Academy at AFP

This past Saturday and Sunday (April 10th and 11th) I participated in the Association of Fundraising Professional’s Faculty Training Academy (FTA).  FTA is the association’s ongoing “train the trainers” event.  It prepares participants to be better educators, mentors and presenters by focusing on adult learning concepts and teaching techniques.  The session was led by B.J. Bischoff of Bischoff Performance Improvement Consulting in Indianapolis.  She was joined by Scott Staub, ACFRE of the Glide Foundation and Vivian Smith, CFRE of Liberty Quest Enterprises, who served as co-facilitators.

The Academy concluded with each participant’s making a 10-minute presentation in front a group of their peers after which they had an opportnity to discuss techniques and approaches.  The two images you see here are from my 10-minute presentation, which focused on preparing staff and volunteers for their roles in the solicitation process.

It was a great program and absolutely worth the time and investment.  The skills and perspectives I picked up during those two days will most definitely improve my training and presentations in the future.
