Principal Rick Kiernan, a resident of North Carolina and active member of the North Carolina Economic Development Association, is looking forward to attending this year’s fall conference in Asheville. Convergent has been providing fundraising assistance to EDOs, chambers, and nonprofit organizations throughout the state for many years, developing a reputation of being the “go-to” fundraising firm in the state. If you haven’t had the chance to talk with Rick at any past NCEDA events, he’d love to have the chance to meet with you and discuss your organization’s funding needs while in Asheville.
