Office Hours

To provide great value and to serve as a resource to our membership, SLCCGP will launch a ten-week pilot project called “Office Hours”. As a benefit of your membership, these virtual events are free to members and will be limited to 10 member participants and two facilitators who will serve as resources for discussion and will provide suggestions or answers.

Office Hours will offer an informal setting where planned giving professionals can get questions answered and gain new ideas and insights from colleagues and leaders in the industry. They will be scheduled on ten consecutive Fridays from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m. beginning on September 18 and ending on November 20.

We hope you will consider joining us for Office Hours by registering using the links provided.
