While Principal Mark Bergethon attends a number of economic development conferences throughout the year, he always looks 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 afterward.

At every MAEDC conference Mark is 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” after the 2014 conference, which we shared on our blog after the conference. If you didn’t see when it was originally published, or if it’s been awhile since you’ve had the chance to review it, 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 us at Info@ConvergentNonprofit.com to set up a one-on-one meeting to review your questions during the conference.
