Connections. They are essential to every aspect of our lives - personal, spiritual and professional. While they tie us to our past and ground us in tradition and identity, connections are key to moving forward. As Christians, we value connections to our past, to the larger community and to each other. These connections tie us together in community and move us forward in faith for service in and to the world.

ALDE CFRE Study Days
October 8 and 15, 2020

CFRE approved logo"The ALDE CFRE Study Days were invaluable in my passing the CFRE Exam and receiving the CFRE designation." - Jon Dize, CFRE

If you work in development, taking advantage of ALDE CFRE Study Days is one of the most
cost-effective and schedule-friendly ways to advance yourself and your organization. If you're preparing for the CFRE Exam you'll want to attend, but the course is beneficial for so much more than that. It also offers a valuable review for the more experienced professional - even one who already has CFRE certification - as the profession is always changing (and you can get CE points for recertification). It's also an excellent introduction to the field.

The content will be provided by webinar, so you can attend anywhere. Registration also includes a copy of the just-released 
"CFRE Exam Compass Study Guide," a $50 value.
