While Principal Mark Bergethon attends a number of economic development conferences throughout the year, he always look forward to MAEDC conferences because there is a such a broad geographic representation of economic developers present to learn from at each of them. This year’s Competitiveness Conference is no exception, and Mark is looking forward to joining you in Chicago. The sessions planned for this year’s conference sound like they will be packed full of great information, and we can’t wait to see what takeaways Mark has to share with us afterwards.

At last year’s Annual Conference, Mark was asked a lot of great questions about the fundraising process. In fact, the quality of the questions inspired him to write “Fundraising FAQs from Mid-American Economic Developers,” which we shared on our blog and via our newsletter after the conference. If you didn’t see the post last year, please take a moment to read it over now, and be sure to visit with Mark at the conference if you have any additional questions you’d like to ask. You can also email Mark at MBergethon@ConvergentNonprofit.com to set up a one-on-one meeting to review your questions during the conference.
