A message from WIDN’s President


Women in Development North is an organization for fundraising professionals that has been making a difference for over 30 years. It is a place where development professionals come together to share ideas, network, remain inspired and stay current on fundraising best practices.

We meet monthly from September to June at members’ nonprofit organizations or public libraries over a brown-bag lunch. Our meetings consist of networking and a program given by regional and national experts. These programs are approved for CFRE credits. The annual membership is $40, a terrific value for staying current on your field of expertise and meeting other like-minded professions.

I invite you to join us to see what we are all about. Be sure to check out our upcoming events. Recent topics include:
• Board development
• Strategic planning
• Annual giving and
• Career advancement strategies, just to name a few.

You are welcome to attend one of our monthly meetings any time during the year before joining Women in Development North.

I look forward to welcoming you in person!

Lisa M. Frey
WIDN President, 2017-2019
