Convergent Principal Rick Kiernan will be attending the NCEDA Annual Conference again this year. As a long-time participant, he’s looking forward to catching up with colleagues, friends, and clients in beautiful Wrightsville Beach. Not only is a Rick a North Carolina resident, the Convergent team has been providing fundraising services for many years throughout the state, and we have become the go-to fundraising firm in the Carolinas. That’s why it’s so important to us to stay involved and knowledgeable about the top concerns and trends impacting economic developers in the state.

If you’d like to set-up an in-person meeting with Rick while you’re in Wrightsville Beach to learn more about how we can help your organization secure the funding it needs, please email him directly at
