At Adnet, we believe that professional development is an important avenue for honing our skills, learning about best practices, achieving standards of excellence, and advancing our career growth. Within our field there are several options for credentialing, including the Chartered Advisor in Philanthropy® designation (CAP), 21/64 certification, the Certified Fundraising Executive certification (CFRE), and more. What is the time commitment and process to obtain these credentials? How do they add value? For whom? A panel of your peers will share their experience and perspective.

Join this conversation to learn more, and to share your questions and insights about various learning pathways and competencies that may aid in the effectiveness and success of development professionals.

This sessions is open to Adnet members only.
