I will be presenting at the Ontario Hospital Association's conference “Strengthening Foundation Governance: Current Issues, Challenges and Solutions” on May 30, 2014 in Toronto.   

My topic is:

“Boards and Resource Development: Tension, Challenges and Opportunities 

• Why are some board members uncomfortable with philanthropy? 
• How can the board support resource development and fundraising? 
• Legal and standards issues with hospital fundraising 
• Overcoming challenges with major gift fundraising
