Arts Presenters of Northern New England invites all APNNE and NEP members to a virtual development-focused conversation:

"Asking Without Anxiety"

with guest speaker Jenn Hayslett

Tuesday, April 11, 2023 at 2:00 PM

In arts organizations you are constantly needing to ask people to do things...asking volunteers for their time and energy, asking board members and donors for financial support, asking businesses and corporations to sponsor shows.

But how do you do it?  When do you ask?
When do you listen and when do you talk?

In this interactive presentation, you will learn the Connecting Conversations visual model to successfully prepare. The focus will be on fundraising, but you can use this model to help anchor your other asking conversations.

Please come prepared to engage with your screen on!
