Get Involved

Every year, ADRP volunteers host regional events as a way to bring together donor relations and stewardship professionals to network, inspire, and learn about best practices within the profession. Regional events are held in various locations around the United States and Canada, serving as a platform to connect with professionals locally. These events can only come to fruition through the hard work of our volunteers and support of our generous sponsors. With support, guidance, and approval of the ADRP staff, volunteers create successful events and programs in a variety of formats.

Regional event formats include:

  • Coffee or Happy Hour: 10–25 of your closest (literally) colleagues for networking.
  • Breakfast or Lunch Round Table: 25–50 guests at your institution for a breakfast or lunch round-table discussion.
  • Regional Workshop: 50–100 attendees, with three or four speakers and informal round-table discussions.
  • Regional Conference: One- to two-day event in your town to make lasting connections with your colleagues.
