The premier program for fraternal foundation professionals

This flagship program of the Foundation for Fraternal Excellence is the largest of its kind dedicated to education and professional development for fraternal foundation staff and volunteers. Seminar provides attendees with a forum to collaborate on advancing our organizations’ mission while also offering an opportunity to learn new strategies and tools for our work, collaborate on shared business problems and network with over 350 industry professionals. In addition, Seminar provides a chance to recognize outstanding achievements of FFE member organizations and individuals through Awards of Distinction.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

Seminar is intended for fraternal foundation staff in all functional areas and foundation volunteer leadership. By combining Seminar with the NIC Annual Meeting of Members, we create a well-rounded slate of programming for both foundation and fraternity leaders. Recommended attendees for NIC Annual Meeting programming include fraternity execs, board members and key volunteers, and director-level staff in various operational areas.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?

The program is formatted in blocks of educational sessions with keynote speakers throughout. Seminar also seeks to provide tracked content for specific areas (like the Board of Directors track at Seminar 2019) when possible. Level of expertise covered in breakout sessions ranges from those new to the profession or to tenured professionals to volunteer development.

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Seminar programs are selected specifically to cover a variety of curriculum areas for professional development, including communications, engagement, fundraising, management and stewardship.
