As always, the JGA consultants are keeping busy in the non-profit community. In September, Meg Gammage-Tucker, Senior JGA Consultant, taught two days of “Developing Annual Sustainability” for The Fundraising School in Indianapolis, and October 15th – 17th she will be presenting two sessions on Establishing an Annual Fund and Taking the Fear out of Asking for Gifts at the Zoological Association of America conference in Wichita, Kansas.
Ted Grossnickle, Chairman and CEO of JGA, has also been on the move. Ted recently spent three days in New York City conducting client interviews (and rubbing elbows with world leaders who were attending the UN General Assembly). Fresh off the plane, Ted headed back to his alma mater, Wabash College, to give the Chapel speech to students, faculty, and staff on October 8th. Early next month, Ted will be presenting the keynote address to the Lambda Chi Regional meeting at Wabash, and he is also authoring a chapter for an upcoming book which will address the trustee’s role in fundraising.
Senior Consultant Angela White is also keeping busy with her work on behalf of the Women’s Philanthropy Institute. On November 6th, Angela will speak on why gender matters in philanthropy at the University of Kentucky’s “Power of the Purse” presentation. Angela will also speak at the inaugural fall symposium for the University of Oklahoma Women’s Philanthropy Network on November 19th. The symposium will highlight the ways in which gifts “have enriched the academic life of the University” while also educating attendees on how they can make a difference.
So, don’t be surprised if you happen to run into a JGA consultant…it seems they can turn up just about anywhere.
