WIDN provides members with monthly meetings on key development concepts and issues. We hold our meetings in various locations throughout the northern suburbs so that you will find them easily accessible.

Women in Development North is an approved provider of continuing education credit for the Certified Fundraising Executive (CFRE) credential. Most of our events are eligible for CFRE points; see program descriptions for details.

Our reasonable annual membership ($40) and our emphasis on timely topics has translated into a robust organization. We currently have about 80 members.

As the co-founder of WIDN over 30 years ago, I am both delighted and impressed to see how the organization has grown and continues to provide such wonderful support for development professionals.  The varied topics presented at our meetings are so important, as they increase our knowledge and sharpen our abilities to raise funds for our nonprofit organizations and clients. -Francine Friedman, CFRE
